The College is running a series of educational workshops for CICM Supervisors and Fellows. The workshop includes trainee mapping exercises with a focus on individual trainee’s predicted training pathway for the next few years and to identify required non ICU rotations, and to assist Supervisors in giving realistic advice to trainees about their training plans. The day will also include a professional development session in the afternoon with simulation activities with actors. The regional committees will be asked to provide input on the content of these afternoon sessions.
 
The workshops provide an opportunity for networking and sharing of common education and training issues and potential solutions.
 
These workshops will be taking place in the following locations:
