The Society of Critical Care Medicine's (SCCM) hosted Fundamental Disaster Management (FDM) course combines expert-developed lectures with hands-on skill stations to prepare healthcare professionals to treat victims of natural or man-made mass casualty events.

The course arms critical care professionals with the expertise to manage the critical care response to large-scale disasters. It focuses on critically ill patients who are admitted to your hospital and is a must for clinicians who may come in contact with critically ill and/or injured patients after a mass casualty event.

Course length: 1 day

Course features:
  • Flexible learning formats: in-person and online
  • Interactive presentations
  • Case-based skill stations
  • Pre- and posttests
  • Companion textbook
  • Certificate of successful course completion
  • Continuing education credit hours (if offered by the course site)
The course is available in two licensed, director-led formations—traditional hosted and online hosted. The in-person hosted course consists of face-to-face lectures and skill stations. The online hosted course consists of web-based lectures and in-person skill stations.

To receive the certificate of successful completion, course participants must attend all didactic lectures, successfully complete all skill stations, and achieve a score of 70% or higher on the posttest.
