The Department is part of the Faculty of Medicine at the University of Alberta. We are committed to providing excellence in patient care, research and education. Our faculty offer training, conduct research, and provide patient care to the various Critical Care Units in and around the Edmonton area. Our critical care units consist of highly trained inter-disciplinary teams, advanced life-support technology and monitoring equipment. We have integrated the “ICU without walls” concept, where instead of having a dedicated location in the hospital, we take the
necessary expertise and support to patients who are at-risk of adverse outcomes or developing critical illness.
Our training programs are designed to establish the foundation for safe, independent critical care practice by focusing on the development and maintenance of competence in clinical care, medical education and research, and by equipping and developing life-long commitment to education.
