WICM: Women in Intensive Care Medicine

In 2016, to coincide with International Women’s Day, the Faculty released a series of short statements from inspiring women working and training in ICM.The articles were very well received and demonstrated an appetite amongst our members for encouraging, inspiring and supporting women to fulfil their Intensive Care ambitions. Building on tis and with commitment from the Faculty Board and the Careers, Recruitment and Workforce Committee the Faculty are creating a new virtual working group called Women in Intensive Care (WICM).

Please see the WICM page for more information on this new opportunity

Upcoming work

The Faculty has begun work on a careers strategy through the Careers, Recruitment & Workforce Committee (CRW).  The work is led by Dr Jonathan Goodall.  Please keep checking back to this webpage for further details on developments in this area.
