CICM Fellowship Exam


A few brief words about the exam.

Little is available out there to prepare the candidate for the horror of these end days. The exam is separated into three distinct cognitive niches. The written paper and the vivas integrate together very well; the hot cases are a totally different kettle of fish. This content represents my notes for the CICM Fellowship Part Two Examination. If one distrusts secondary sources, one can peruse the original past papers here, at the college website. The College have some material on their site, particularly their Notes to Candidates; this is useful insofar as it is an explanation of the exam process, the marking of the papers, and the expected behaviour of examiners and candidates during the clinical section.

Life In The Fast Lane have a good page with useful links to exam preparation resources.

Crit-IQ offer a paid service, with excellent podcasts and a regularly updated journal club. There one may also discover various exam preparation courses which may be helpful.

The Intensive Care Network has some of the same notes as LITFL, but in word document format. There is also a wealth of educational material in the format of lectures and podcasts, presented in a luxuriously media-rich format.
