Why should I take this course?

We need more competent critical care providers, not simply those who take a short class and then begin working in the field as a critical care provider.
The program begins with foundational courses that introduce students to the role and responsibilities of a critical care provider. Topics covered include critical care transport, medical and legal considerations, patient safety, and assessment techniques.
As students progress through the program, they delve into more advanced topics such as specialized pathologies (e.g., GI/GU emergencies, endocrine disorders, toxicology emergencies) and their corresponding critical care interventions. They also receive focused instruction on critical care concepts applied to pediatric populations, including neonatal emergencies, OB/GYN care, and considerations for bariatric patients and patients with unique healthcare needs.
Throughout the program, students have ample opportunities to practice and refine their skills. Hands-on activities and simulations provide practical experience in areas such as blood product administration, airway management, chest tube insertion, and other essential critical care procedures. Students also engage in a Neonatal Resuscitation Program (NRP), where they develop expertise in resuscitating and stabilizing critically ill neonates.
The program culminates with a capstone course that integrates the knowledge and skills acquired throughout the program. Students participate in complex case studies, interprofessional team exercises, and reflective activities that foster critical thinking, problem-solving, effective communication, and collaboration. A comprehensive summative evaluation assesses students' proficiency in critical care concepts, clinical skills, and decision-making abilities.
Upon completion of the Critical Care Program, graduates emerge as highly skilled critical care providers ready to tackle diverse and complex critical care scenarios. They possess the expertise and confidence to deliver exceptional patient-centered care while demonstrating leadership, adaptability, and a commitment to evidence-based practice.
