Details available on the Faculty of Intensive Care Medicine website under the national recruitment tab.
Recruitment to the new CCT in Intensive Care Medicine commenced in August 2012. Doctors will be able to apply to either train on a Single CCT in ICM or to form a Dual Programme between the ICM CCT and a partner specialty. Currently Acute Medicine, Anaesthetics, Emergency Medicine, Renal Medicine and Respiratory Medicine have agreed Dual Programmes. A Dual Programme is formed by a doctor being appointed at separate interviews to a CCT Programme in ICM and one of the partner specialties. Due to the complexities of the UK Offers System, this will currently be organised by recruitment in consecutive years (i.e. the doctor can apply for ICM in August 2012 and then for Anaesthetics in August 2013 or vice versa – if he is appointed to both, he can then form a Dual ICM/Anaesthetics CCTs Programme).
In August 2012, recruitment will begin to the Single CCT in ICM. Dual Programmes will be introduced only from August 2013. Accordingly, it will not be possible to be recruited to a Dual Programme until August 2013. The FICM and COPMeD agreed with the GMC that recruitment to the Joint CCT will continue until 31 July 2013 to ensure there is not a shortfall in ICM CCTs in the transition period between the two curricula. Therefore, doctors currently in ST3 in a partner specialty will be eligible to apply for the Joint CCT until 31 July 2013. Trainees entering ST3 in August 2012 will therefore train in ICM via either a single CCT or dual CCT process.
