Alfred Health is a leader in health care delivery, improvement, research and education. We are the main provider of health services to people living in the inner southeast suburbs of Melbourne, from ambulatory, to inpatient and home and community based services.
The Alfred Department of Intensive Care is a state of the art 45 bed unit that treats approximately 3000 patients per year.
The Alfred ICU provides Victorian state services for heart & lung transplantation (including paediatric lung transplantation), artificial heart technology, extra-corporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO), burns and hyperbaric medicine. The Alfred is one of two centres providing state services for adult trauma, HIV and bone marrow transplantation (autologous and allogeneic). In addition most other surgical and medical subspecialties are represented in the case-mix in keeping with the quaternary referral center status of The Alfred Hospital. There is an ICU-based echocardiography service with regular education sessions and opportunities for hands-on training. There is also an opportunity to undertake a six month rotation in our Hyperbaric Service.
The Alfred Department of Intensive Care is accredited for 2 core years of training as stipulated by the College of Intensive Care Medicine. There is an extensive consultant led education program including dedicated protected weekly teaching sessions for junior and senior registrars aimed at developing both technical and non-technical skills. This program includes weekly journal club sessions, in-situ simulation training and bronchoscopy training. We provide an ECMO and artificial heart training program to enable trainees to gain formal certification in this area. In addition, we also provide, for senior registrars, specific training in leadership and mentoring, again with certification available on completion. For advanced trainees preparing for the CICM examination there is additional consultant led training provided. The Alfred education website is available at http://intensiveblog.com.
