Return to face-to-face exams
The Faculty welcomes the RCoA's return to face-to-face examinations from April 2022.
The FFICM Final examination is mandatory for doctors undertaking the ICM CCT programme. Those on the previous 'Joint' CCT programme are eligible to take the examination, although it is optional. Affiliate Fellows, Members (MFICM), Associate Members and MTI doctors of the Faculty who meet all of the exam eligibility criteria will also be permitted to sit the FFICM exam.
Operational delivery of the FFICM examinations is overseen by the Royal College of Anaesthetists' Exams Department.
Please see the FFICM Exam Regulations for detailed information on eligibility, application procedures, appeals and guidance.
