In remembrance

Obituary: Hans Ulrich Rothen


It is with deep sadness that we must announce the passing of a friend and colleague, Professor Hans Ulrich Rothen, MD PhD, who died in Bern last week, following a serious bicycle accident.

Prior to his retirement, Professor Rothen was a Senior Consultant in the Department of Intensive Care Medicine at the Bern University Hospitals, Switzerland, and an active examiner and trainer of medical students and nurses in intensive care medicine.

Hans was an excellent clinician, researcher and educationalist, dedicated to the efforts undertaken by the Society to establish the highest quality of training for intensivists.

As a former Chair of the CoBa Forum and CoBa Faculty, he was instrumental in coordinating with national training organisations for CoBaTrICE to be recognised at national and European level.

We would like to acknowledge his hard work, dedication and significant contribution to the Society and the intensive care community.  Our thoughts are with his family, friends and colleagues.

A full obituary will be published shortly in the ICM journal.
