General (Internal) Medicine (GIM)
Training in General (Internal) Medicine leads to acquisition of the skills and competencies that are needed to allow a consultant to assume clinical responsibility for the ‘general medical take’, which requires an ability to diagnose and treat patients with a wide range of acute and chronic presentations.
Within the East of England Deanery all trainees following the GIM curriculum to CCT will be doing so in parallel with training in another medical specialty.
The rotations of Specialty Registrars (StR) appointed to programmes in the East of England Deanery are organised by the relevant specialty training programme directors. In almost all cases these programmes will involve rotational appointments, with training in General (internal) Medicine for those trainees pursuing a dual CCT being deliverable at all hospitals, with the exception of the few that are purely specialist hospitals, e.g. Papworth.
Essential Qualifications for Entry
- Completion of a core medical training programme or equivalent.
- Documented evidence of achievement of level 1 competencies in general internal medicine (acute) and generic curricula.
- Full MRCP is essential for entry into GIM training programmes at ST3 level.
