With the incoming CCT in Intensive Care Medicine, a project is underway to develop National Recruitment for ICM. England and Wales will recruit to the new CCT during Spring 2012 for posts starting in August 2012. The West Midlands Deanery will act as the co-ordinating Deanery for recruitment. National Recruitment for ICM will be for doctors starting in ST3 from August 2012 on the new curriculum.
It is important to note that for August 2013 there will be no upper limit on when a trainee can enter a second specialty within training. Trainees who apply from partner specialties at a higher level (i.e. ST6), will need to undertake the posts and CCT programme for their new CCT. This may include training in posts at the Stage 1 (ST3/ST4) level where required. It should be noted that if the trainee is entering the second specialty more than 18 months after entering the first, then the GMC will award them a CESR(CP) in the second specialty, not a CCT. Please see point 9 in the GMC's 'Way Forward' statement regarding ICM training.
The National Recruitment project is overseen by the Faculty's Recruitment Sub-Committee [FICMRSC]:
The Sub-Committee and the project is managed by Daniel Waeland (Head of FICM) with support from James Goodwin (FICM Supervisor). Manjit Kaur is the lead administrator for ICM at the West Midlands Deanery. The Sub-Committee also has representation from the JRCPTB, the RCoA, the CEM and the DH.
As the project continues, further information will be uploaded to both this website and the West Midlands Deanery ICM recruitment portal. Please do keep checking this page for updates.
