What it means for hospital services (sites)

Sites that are eligible to apply are those that are:

  • not accredited for training by the Australian and New Zealand College of Anaesthetists (ANZCA)
  • not accredited for training by the College of Intensive Care Medicine (CICM)
  • accredited for Foundation training by CICM.

Sites can be accredited for:

  • ACEM-Anaesthetics Critical Care
  • ACEM-ICM Critical Care
  • ACEM-Anaesthetics Special Skills
  • ACEM-ICM Special Skills.

Sites can be accredited as a training provider by:

  • completing the AC253 CCIQ and submitting it to [email protected]
  • if approved, the site will initially receive provisional accreditation of up to two years to appoint a trainee
  • the site will be inspected for full accreditation towards the end of the first trainee’s placement.
