Medical intensive care medicine treats patients with severe, potentially life-threatening diseases covering the complete spectrum of internal medicine. The qualification in medical intensive care medicine requires a broad spectrum of knowledge and skills in medical intensive care medicine, but also in the general field of internal medicine. Both sides of the coin must be taken into account, the treatment with life-sustaining strategies of the acute illness of the patient and also the treatment of patient’s underlying chronic diseases. The indispensable foundation of medical intensive care medicine as described in this curriculum includes basic knowledge and skills (level of competence I–III) as well as of behavior and attitudes. This curriculum is primarily dedicated to the internist in advanced training in medical intensive care medicine. However, this curriculum also intends to reach trainers in intensive care medicine and also the German physician chambers with their examiners, showing them which knowledge, skills as well as behavior and attitudes should be taught to trainees according to the education criteria of the German Society of Medical Intensive Care and Emergency Medicine (DGIIN).
