Medical students must learn the skills to resuscitate unstable patients, however, most medical schools do not provide a core curriculum in critical care medicine (CCM) to ensure students learn these skills. One explanation is that local curriculum committees believe these skills are taught in other required courses. The Society of Critical Care Medicine supports a change in educational requirements nationally; however, changes in local curriculum are most likely to occur if CCM faculty participate on local curriculum committees.
