Applying for training post

How do I apply for training posts in Intensive Care Medicine?
Eligible applicants who have satisfied training criteria in their base specialty may apply to the JFICMI for interview to enter postgraduate training in Intensive Care Medicine. Trainees who have modules in Intensive Care Medicine during their base specialty training need to register with the JFICMI to ensure that a JFICMI supervisor of Training prospectively reviews the module and oversees its conduct and monitoring – see competencies and logbook sections. In this circumstance, these modules will be signed off towards achieving eligibility to sit the Fellowship examination. These modules should be no less than 2 months in duration and are applicable to trainees in all base specialties.
