Division of Professional Development
The DPD via the Education & Training Committee is in charge of developing and promoting the educational and training programme of ESICM.
This entails coordinating the efficient and effective work of CoBaTrICE, e-Learning Committee, the Educational Courses driven by the Clinical Training Committee, as well as EDEC and EDIC.
European Diploma in Intensive Care Medicine
EDIC is offered to candidates who have successfully completed two standardised exit exams (MCQs and OSCE). These exams are continuously updated to reflect current skills, attitude, competencies and knowledge necessitated for intensive care practice.
ESICM Advanced Training Courses in Intensive Care
In addition to the Master Classes included in the educational programme at the LIVES annual congress, ESICM offers one and two day Master Classes linked to competencies defined in CoBaTrICE and PACT. Designed for doctors training in intensive care and as a refresher for the intensive care specialist, these courses are interactive and include a combination of short lectures, small group tutorials, and practical workshops.
These Classes are available as an educational resource for ESICM members and can be organised in collaboration with National Societies.
Advance your career through certification exams, training grants and fellowships.
