Changes to the SOT application and appointment process
17 July, 2023
Attention all Directors of Units, current and prospective SOTs
Supervisor of Training changes
The CICM Board have approved some changes to the SOT application and appointment process, which will be in effect from 24
July 2023. The major changes are:
Nomination process (new nominations)
Two referees will be required as part of the SOT nomination process.
These referees are selected by the applicant and/or the ICU Director. One of the referees must be a trainee (any medical discipline) or a colleague from outside the discipline of intensive care medicine.
CICM will contact the referees to ask for a reference so that the content of the reference is confidential.
A statement from the applicant (of 500 words or less) outlining their capabilities and interests that will support them in the SOT role is also required as part of the nomination process.
Appointment tenure and workshops
All initial appointments will be for a period of 12 months. During this time, the SOT
complete the essential (mandatory) workshop.
Following the initially appointment period, if no concerns are identified, and if the SOT has
completed the workshop, the appointment is upheld.
Tenure will include a review and rollover of duties on a five yearly basis (following the initially 12-month period); however, the term of tenure is not limited.
Termination of appointment
A clause regarding termination of appointment has been added to the T10: The role of Supervisors of Training in Intensive Care Medicine.
Please note that the T-10 document will be updated on the effective date, 24 July 2023.
