International Medical Graduates – Applying for Specialist Recognition of Australian College of Intensive Care Medicine (CICM)

Before applying for a Specialist ICU Registrar job in Australia as an International Medical Graduate Specialist (IMGS), it is essential for your qualifications and experience to be evaluated by the CICM specialist training committee. The evaluation process aims to assess the ability of an IMGS to practise as an unsupervised Intensive Care Medicine at a comparable standard to that required of a CICM-recognised Fellow of the Australian College of Intensive Care Medicine.

For further information on how to commence the CICM specialists’ assessment process, go to the CICM specialist recognition for overseas trained Intensivist information page.

Pursuing a Fellowship in Intensive Care

To become an ICU Specialist, at least six years in post-graduate training is expected. This includes three years of basic training and three years of advanced training. The CICM provides detailed information for the training assessment requirements. The FCICM training requirements are relevant to all Practitioners that have completed their training in Australia.

This six year training program results in the award of the diploma FCICM, Fellowship of the College of Intensive Care Medicine of Australia and New Zealand.

Scope of Practice for Intensivist Specialist

The specialisation of Intensive Care Medicine involves the knowledge and skills required for the assessment, resuscitation and ongoing management of seriously ill patients with life-threatening single and multiple organ system failure. An ICU Specialist will attend to a full spectrum of cases and is also frequently involved in transporting and assisting with the management of seriously ill patients who may be admitted outside of the intensive care unit.
