FICM Thrive

Welcome to FICM Thrive. FICM Thrive is a Career Mentoring and Personal Development Programme created and coordinated by the Faculty of Intensive Care Medicine with the overall aim to facilitate a strong productive mentoring relationship based on mutual, equal and collaborative development and learning between mentors and mentees. Thrive is managed by the Women in Intensive Care Medicine (WICM) Sub-Committee of the FICM Careers, Recruitment and Workforce Committee.

When can I register as a mentor or mentee or both?

FICM Thrive will launch 6 May 2021.

Who is Thrive aimed at

The launch phase will focus on new consultants in ICM, in their first 5 years post-appointment. Following this the programme will be reviewed to increase its availability to individuals at all stages of their career.   

How can I register?

  • Read through the full guidance document.
  • Fill in the registration forms in the guidance document. Try to make your form detailed and specific so you can be best matched to a mentor or mentee. A word version of the all the forms in the guidance document is available below to accompany the PDF.
  • Return these to wicm@ficm.ac.uk 

What happens next?

After you have sent in your registration form, you will be matched with a mentor or mentee. The Faculty will aim to do this within a month but as the database of mentors and mentees is brand new, initially matches may take a little more time, but the Faculty will update you on the progress of your application and will aim to match you as soon as we can.
