Guidance on the Combined Programme route to CCT

Published 03/05/2022

Recognising training undertaken outside of core training programmes

This guidance is to try and provide consistency in recognising training undertaken outside of core training programmes. This may be relevant for specialty trainees who have been successful in obtaining an ICM CCT post but who want some of their prior training counted towards ICM higher specialist training.

By its nature, ICM is a broad and general speciality. Skills, knowledge and training in other relevant specialities can be used towards the ICM curriculum. The Faculty continues to embrace diversity in training and these transferable attributes. It is important that consistency is applied to how this diverse prior training is counted towards the ICM curriculum outcomes.
