Care of the Critically Ill Surgical Patient (CCrISP)

CCrISP is a two-day, interactive course (including mandatory, pre-course e-learning) covering the practical skills and knowledge needed to look after surgical patients including those who are deteriorating or at risk of doing so.

Highly knowledgeable faculty from both surgical and anaesthetic specialties will help you develop practical, theoretical and personal skills in a safe environment so that you can assess and manage critical situations in a systematic way.

CCrISP is relevant to all specialties, however, examples are predominantly taken from general surgical patients.

CCrISP is recommended in the ISCP for Core Surgery and eligible for HEE study leave applications.

Our priority is to provide training for doctors working for the NHS. Due to demand and limited availability we do not accept applications from doctors working overseas. 

RCS membership entitles you to a 10% discount on this course at partner centres. Find out if you're eligible to join or transfer

Due to high demand for places on courses, we recommend checking the website frequently for new courses and places that may become available. Regrettably we cannot offer a waiting list service, but we are doing everything we can to make more courses available.
