The Faculty of Intensive Care Medicine is pleased to receive applications for Affiliate Fellowship from medical practitioners holding a substantive or honorary NHS or Defence Medical Services consultant post in the United Kingdom with a sessional or other contracted clinical commitment to Intensive Care Medicine which does not meet the level of daytime clinical commitment requirement for full Fellowship. Please note that there are no post-nominals associated with this membership category.
The following criteria define the level of daytime clinical commitment to ICM required to be eligible for full Fellowship of the Faculty of Intensive Care Medicine [FFICM]. There are TWO routes of entry to Affiliate Fellowship:
Applicants must be a consultant with a defined, contracted daytime clinical commitment to Intensive Care Medicine which does not meet these criteria. If you have a contracted clinical commitment to ICM which does meet these criteria, you should apply for Fellowship by Assessment (if you are a Fellow of one of the FICM trustee colleges) or Associate Fellowship (if you are not).
Daytime sessions or PAs for ICM have the following characteristics:
Applicants must be a registered ICM Affiliate Trainee (or have previously registered with the IBTICM/FICM via 'General Registration') who has completed, outside of the ICM CCT programme, training in Intensive Care Medicine commensurate with either:
Applicants for Affilliate Fellowship must be a Fellow or Member in good standing of one of the FICM Trustee Colleges below, or an FICM Affiliate Trainee who has achieved the required level of training and competency.
|The Royal College of Physicians of London [RCP London]|
|The Royal College of Physicians of Edinburgh [RCP Edinburgh]|
|The Royal College of Surgeons of England [RCS England]|
|The Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh [RCS Edinburgh]|
|The Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Glasgow [RCPSG]|
|The College of Emergency Medicine [CEM]|
|The Royal College of Anaesthetists [RCoA]|
Please Note: FICM Affiliate Fellows who are fellows of one of the trustee colleges will pay a lower subscription rate than those with no trustee college affiliation. This is because the FICM receives financial support from its trustee colleges for facilities and services; single registrants must therefore contribute to these costs as already subsidised by those with dual fellowships.
