Intensive care medicine is a newly formed specialty. Intensive care is characterized by a multidisciplinary activity focused on patients whose vital organs are compromised or who are at risk of multiorgan failure. Education in the intensive care unit is a complex activity where the educational and pedagogical process interacts with research, continuous improvement, professionalism, and bioethics. This model provides leadership and excellence in care with high standards of quality, security, solidarity and humanism.

Key words: Education, intensive care unit.
