Programme Content

The ICM curriculum, along with training objectives and competencies for each level and appropriate assessment modalities, are available on the Faculty website and will underpin all ICM training programmes.

The objective of the training programme is to move from a level of training and ability where an initial diagnosis, resuscitation and stabilisation of a patient is safely undertaken, to a point where the trainee is able to run an intensive care or critical care unit, managing and directing overall patient care plans.

As the doctor in training progresses through each level, the degree of responsibility should increase as should their opportunity to teach and supervise junior colleagues and other staff members. To achieve this certain specific and general aspects of training will be required.
