Onboarding for the ICM CCT Programme

Congratulations! Welcome to the ICM programme

This page contains useful information for doctors that have been appointed to the ICM CCT training programme and includes how to complete your registration with the Faculty. 

Please read the FICM Guidance document for new starters first before you start to complete your ICM CCT Registration Form.
National Training Numbers (NTNs)

The Faculty cannot provide you with an NTN, these are issued by your local Health Education England (HEE) Office/Statutory Education Board. Please contact them regarding this. You can leave this field in the registration form blank until you know your NTN. However, when you are issued with an NTN, please send it to us (contact@ficm.ac.uk) so we can update your training record.

Progression in combined training programmes

Updated May 2021

Doctors in ICM dual or triple CCT Programmes take longer to complete their training than they would do if they were training in just one of the specialties. It has come to our attention there is some confusion around establishing the training year for our doctors following a dual CCT programme with a partner specialty.

In counting the years of training, it is agreed that the training years start at admission to the first specialty training programme, and years are added linearly as they are completed irrespective of the responsibility levels reached in the individual specialties, assuming that satisfactory outcomes have been achieved.

The training year at entry (ST3/ST4 etc.) needs to be determined by the Training Programme Director. Due to the different entry routes, trainees may have covered varying amounts of the ICM curriculum prior to appointment, and so would enter at a different point; for example, a doctor from an ACCS core training programme may be appointed at ST4 instead of ST3 level to account for previous experience.

There may be doctors that fall outside of this guidance due to having a complex training history. Where possible, we endeavour to incorporate all relevant prior medical training onto our programme to avoid any unnecessary prolongation of training.

If there are any questions regarding a particular doctor’s training history, we are always happy to help clarify. Please do not hesitate to contact us.
