General Internal Medicine


Curriculum information for General (Internal) Medicine

The Summary of Training calculator was put together to allow trainees to calculate their acute medical take and outpatient (or outpatient-equivalent) experience in a manner consistent with the 2009 GIM decision aid (revised 2012); that will be used at ARCPs and PYAs. The general internal medicine SAC recommends this to trainees and assessors as an easy means of providing information that is required to inform these assessments. The calculator, when complete, must be signed by your ES and saved under the 'Personal Library' in your E-Portfolio (please use a separate folder titled Summary of Training)

The 2009 general internal medicine (GIM) curriculum was revised with effect from August 2012 onwards. All trainees who are following the 2009 GIM curriculum will be expected to adopt the changes below on a prospective basis.

Please see JRCPTB for G(I)M queries.

GIM Training Days

Trainees must provide evidence of 100 Hours of ''External'' CPD over the three year GIM training programme. The G(I)M STC arranges a 'Deanery Teaching Day' (one day every other month) and all dual training SpR's/StR's are invited to attend. Teaching days are managed by Dr Aled Roberts and Dr Biju Mohamed. Any enquiries should be directed to Dr Roberts or Dr Mohamed.

Trainees must attend 3 of the 4 G(I)M training days annually. Each 6-hour training day counts for 6 hours of CPD (with 100 hours of CPD required over the course of the G(I)M programme.)
