Educational Pathways

What is a personalised educational pathway?

When searching for training, it is often difficult to find an available educational programme that matches 100% of your expectations. In order to fill the skills and knowledge deficit, practitioners follow a number of different training programmes throughout their careers, often leading to an overall fragmented training experience.

ESICM offers you the opportunity to create your own learning pathway according to the topics of the most interest for you. You will benefit from personal tutoring and your training activities will be certified by ESICM, so that you can validate them at a national level.

Which topics?

The first pathway we offer is focused on a key area of intensive care, INFECTION (INF).
Pathways for several other topics are currently being developed.

How can you build your pathway?

You can build your INF pathway progressively by participating in our webinars and e-learning modules and attending our Master Classes in Brussels, pre-congress Master Classes, congress sessions and completing our highly popular fellowship programme.

Who can benefit from it?

Physicians – trainees and more senior specialists, nurses, and allied healthcare professionals with an interest in intensive care medicine.

We provide you with the options and guidance, but you are able to build your own personal educational pathway according your individual interests, and your stage of career development. Educational pathways are an important element in ensuring Continuous Professional Development in the specialty.
