An intensivist is a physician who specializes in the care of critically ill patients in the intensive care unit and the demand for intensivists in Japan is rapidly increasing. In this chapter, we discuss competencies and skills that a physician should acquire to function as an “ideal intensivist”. In addition, measures to help prevent burnout syndrome of ICU staff are proposed.
