Many of our Trainees have opted to undertake ICM Training as Dual Training with Anaesthesia, Emergency Medicine, Respiratory or Renal Medicine within the HEEKSS region. Historically 55% of our Trainees have come from an Anaesthetic background and 45% from non-anaesthetic specialties.
ICM Training has very good relations with colleagues in other disciplines and we are proud to have a 100% success in Consultant appointments in trainees who have completed our training programs.
