Queen Mary University of London evaluation:
Medicine and surgery evaluation:
Resuscitation is a rapidly evolving area of medicine that crosses the boundaries of emergency medicine, intensive care medicine, anaesthesia and acute medicine. Early recognition of critical illness and resuscitation saves lives and reduces suffering for our patients. We are offering an MSc, Diploma and Taster MOOC to provide an opportunity for you to develop your skills in this area under the guidance of an international faculty. The level of study and knowledge will go beyond most specialist exit exams marking you as a potential leader in this field. We will bring together teaching on diagnosis, resuscitation, pathophysiology, imaging, toxicology, CRM and pre-hospital care/mass casualty medicine under a single umbrella. Resuscitation Medicine is arguably evolving into a subspecialty of medical care and with this course we aim to provide the skills to develop expertise in this field.
