Previous Curricula

The links below will take you to the curriculum manuals for all editions of the ICM CCT prior to the current 2021 version of the curriculum.

The Joint CCT in ICM

UK specialty recognition for Intensive Care Medicine was achieved in 1999 and a competency-based training programme, one of the first in the UK, was developed. Blocks of ICM training to be taken at different stages of 'parent' specialty training were described, along with 'complementary' training modules. 

Successful completion of this training for a trainee who had competed for entry to the training programme resulted in the award of a Joint Certificate of Completion of (Specialist) Training in their parent specialty and ICM. The Joint CCST (later Joint CCT) in ICM was published in various editions.

A standalone CCT in ICM

In 2010 the FICM was tasked by the General Medical Council to develop a single, standalone CCT in Intensive Care Medicine.  This curriculum has was approved and superceded the Joint CCT.  Since 31 July 2013 there has been no further recruitment to the Joint CCT, but those trainees who have been appointed to the Joint programme will continue in it until they have completed their training.
