Regional Advisor for the Faculty of Intensive Care Medicine
Each deanery in the UK has at least one Regional Advisor (RA) in ICM, appointed by the FICM. Some larger deaneries contain more than one region and therefore have two or three RAs.
The RA is the local point of contact for those trainees interested in training in ICM, and has regional responsibility for the promotion of ICM and the provision of advice to Postgraduate Deans, other Regional Advisors, and to their own and other trainees.
