Intensive Care and Emergency Medicine (ICE)
The PhD program “Intensive Care and Emergency Medicine” is directed to students interested in research focusing on topics of acute medicine. It is an interdisciplinary program representing different specialties, including anesthesia, neurology, pediatrics, neonatology, and internal medicine. Students can choose from a broad spectrum of lectures dealing with various aspects of intensive care and emergency medicine.
This interdisciplinary approach offers a wide range of interesting research topics that includes sepsis, organ failure and organ support, epidemiology, and biomarkers in critical illness. The scientific focus will be determined by the selected supervisor responsible for the respective research topic and may range from clinical studies to bench-to-bedside research involving laboratory skills. It is a clear target of this program that work on a thesis is completed by publication in a peer-reviewed, high-impact journal. Representation of several medical fields further enables acquisition of substantial clinical knowledge on all essential aspects of intensive care and emergency medicine on an international and up-to-date level.
