SUMMARY OF THE NEW REQUIREMENTS FOR TRAINING IN INTENSIVE CARE MEDICINE
SOT INFORMATION SESSIONS
The Curriculum Review Committee was set up in 2011 to continue and bring to fruition a complete evaluation of the CICM Curriculum. The aim was to seek advice and submissions widely and provide recommendations to the College Board for improvement, building on the many strengths of the current program including excellent experience in accredited ICU’s and rigorous examinations.
In June 2012 the CICM Board agreed to these recommendations and the Curriculum Review Project was born. The CRP Subcommittees and Working Parties have been formed and are currently working towards implementation of these recommendations which are detailed in the CRP Project Plan.
The aims of the Curriculum Review are summarised as follows:
- Generate an up-to-date curriculum based on best educational evidence ensuring early engagement of ICM trainees in a comprehensive program, focused on active learning and regular assessment through varied and feasible modes.
- Develop a Curriculum based on a broad competency-based approach and consistent with the ESICM Standards for training documents.
- Generate a Definition of an Intensive Care Specialist (ICS) which lists all the key components of the current roles of an intensive care physician and includes those roles unique to the ICS.
- General a Competencies, Teaching, Learning and Assessment document which includes all the components of the current roles of an intensive care physician.
- Effectively and systemically align all Teaching, Learning Opportunities and Assessment within the Curriculum.
- Organise the learning content to provide a sequential approach to knowledge and skill development.
- Emphasise professional qualities and their appropriate assessment.
