Intensive Care

Entry into the Intensive Care Unit stream is via the Critical Care Training Program. During the four term year JMOs will be rotated through anaesthetics, emergency department and intensive care unit. There is also the unique opportunity to experience rural critical care at Bega Hospital.

Each of the above areas have their own teaching programs and JMOs are released from their normal clinical duties to attend these sessions which are delivered by clinicians who are experts in their field and most of whom have academic positions at the Australian National University.

ACT Health offers Basic Assessment and Support in Intensive Care (BASIC) course, subsidised for ACT Health employees.

The education program in intensive care unit includes twice daily teaching sessions with a multidisciplinary focus. There are also extensive preparation courses for the primary and secondary examinations. Simulated learning environments are utilised fortnightly for crisis team practice scenarios.
