Intensive Care Medicine
Opportunities are available for training in both Intermediate ICM and Advanced ICM.
Eligibility for Intermediate Intensive Care training requires at least six months medicine and three months intensive care at a basic level. All trainees intending to complete this must enrol with the Intercollegiate Board for Training in Intensive Care Medicine (IBTICM). The relevant website can be found at www.rcoa.ac.uk/ibticm/. Two three month blocks of intensive care medicine will need to be completed at ST3 level and beyond, and 10 case reports are required to be submitted for scrutiny.
Advanced training is arranged through a competitive interview, and training is usually done in the latter years. Various hospitals in the Peninsula can provide the requisite training. A joint CCT in anaesthesia and intensive care medicine is awarded to those who pass the training.
For further details, contact Mark Sair.
Most trainees will simply complete basic pain training as part of the modular training required of all ST3-ST7s. An advanced Pain Training year is available by competitive interview, usually split between two of the Peninsula hospitals able to provide this training. For details, contact Mark Taylor.
