Queensland Intensive Care Training Pathway

The Queensland intensive care training pathway provides centralised selection and allocation of intensive care medicine trainees to accredited adult and paediatric intensive care units statewide. Trainees are appointed to a pathway training hospital for 6–12 months.

Trainees remain on the pathway for the duration of their intensive care training, subject to satisfactory performance.


The eligibility criteria for new applicants are:

  • General or Limited registration with the Medical Board of Australia
  • Registration with the College of Intensive Care Medicine of Australia and New Zealand (CICM) or eligible to register after completing six months experience in a CICM accredited unit
  • two years or more postgraduate clinical experience (preferably with some experience in critical care medicine).

How to apply

Applications must be submitted through the Queensland Health RMO Campaign annual recruitment process. Refer to the RMO Campaign website for application opening and closing dates. Late applications will not be accepted.

Important information on submitting a pathway application and key selection criteria is available in the How to apply document.


The pathway supports and promotes education and training programs and courses for trainees.
