The Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences of the University of Barcelona, through the Master’s Degree “Critical Care and Emergencies”, in collaboration with the Society of Critical Care Medicine (SCCM), offers the prestigious programs in Critical Medicine of the SCCM. Among these courses, the following stand out:
More than 10,000 physicians per year in five continents receive training from Fundamental Critical Care Support (FCCS), which prepares non-intensivists to care for critical patients during the first 24 hours, until they can be transferred to the ICU. The course is often used to prepare residents prior to their start by rotations in the ICU.
On the other hand, the Fundamental Disaster Management (FDM) course prepares health professionals to identify and treat victims of events caused by natural or man-made accidents (NRBC). It provides critical care professionals with competencies to manage critical care response to large-scale disasters.
