Changes to CICM curriculum in 2024
19 July, 2023
Trainees who joined CICM prior to 2014 will be moved to the current curriculum, this means they will need to complete additional requirements than those mandated in the pre-2014 curriculum. As an SOT, we'like to provide you with a guide on what this means for you, your role and how you can support your trainees as they transition.

Will there be any extensions to the current program?
Some trainees may be close to finishing their pre-2014 requirements but won't be on time for February 2024. Trainees who wish to submit a request for an extension on the pre-2014 program are encouraged to do so by contacting the

What are the changes in 2024?
Firstly, the concept of

Secondly, all trainees who joined CICM prior to 1 January 2014, will transition over to the Phases of Training, and complete requirements on the current curriculum.
What guidance do I give my trainees?
We encourage anyone who is unsure of what their specific training will look like to contact the
or call us on +61 3 9514 2888. We're happy to speak with SOTs should they have any questions.
What does this mean for pre-2014 trainees?
These changes mean that if the remaining training requirements have not been met by February 2024, pre-2014 trainees will be transitioned to the current curriculum, they will be additionally required to complete:
Workplace-based assessments including Observed Clinical Encounters (OCEs) and Workplace Competency Assessments
A 12-month ICU transition year
All online and face-to-face courses
30 Focused Cardiac Ultrasound cases
3-6-month Paediatric exposure
