Welcome to the Joint Faculty of Intensive Care Medicine of Ireland website, the body with responsibility for Intensive Care Medicine (ICM) training and related practice standards in Ireland.  Since 2009, the Faculty has taken over the role of the Irish Board of Intensive Care Medicine and its Memorandum and Articles of Association is available for a more complete outline of its current role. While all are welcome to visit the Joint Faculty’s site, please be advised that its purpose is primarily to facilitate the training, examination and related accreditation activities for Intensive Care doctors and their institutions in Ireland.

The Joint Faculty supervises ICM Training and accredits Trainees and Training Institutions. We wish to invite all trainees of our constituent Training Bodies (CAI, RCPI, RCSI & EM) for whom Intensive Care is part of their training to the free use of the Joint Faculty’s Intensive Care logbook.

  • Consultants full rate – €180 per annum
  • Overseas consultants – €90 per annum

The trainee rate changed in 2008 to an annual fee which applies for the duration of (supra specialty) training in Intensive Care Medicine (one or two years) and afterwards as a Fellow until such time as consultant grade is achieved.
