Acute Medical Training in the West Midlands

The AIM Training Programme
The West Midlands Acute Internal Medicine Training Programme is approved for AMU based training. 

Throughout the duration of a trainees training programme, they will achieve the mandatory curriculum placements (Cardiology / Respiratory / Geriatrics Medicine and Critical Care) through either block or sessional placements.

Critical Care is the only specialty which must be delivered as a block placement.


Training Rotation
All new appointments to the West Midlands rotation will take time out of programme to complete 6 months in Anaesthetics/ITU at Mid Staffordshire Hospital.

Although ICM is now a CCT specialty, this post will still provide trainees excellent experience in Anaesthetics/ITU which will be invaluable to them in the remainder of their training and future consultant post.

Further Information
The Acute Internal Medicine curriculum is available for trainees to access on the JRCPTB website. Additional guidance is available for trainees.
