Please click the links below for various items relating to research and academia in Intensive Care Medicine.

Academic Training in Intensive Care Medicine
Guidance from the FICM on academic training and research for ICM trainees can be found here.

 

In conjunction with the NIHR Clinical Research Network, the Faculty offers two awards annually that aim to recognise outstanding contributions from NHS Clinicians to the conduct of NIHR Clinical Research Network portfolio research studies. 

There are two awards, funded by FICM, each with a £1000 prize.  The awards are focussed on clinicians who undertake research alongside their daytime activities rather than clinical academics.
