ACUTE CARE COMMON STEM

Information about trainee placements within Anaesthetics, including our induction pack and key resources for trainees.

Welcome

Acute Care Common Stem (ACCS) is a three year core training programme enabling Foundation programme trainees to embark into a career in emergency medicine (EM), anaesthetics, intensive care medicine (ICM) and acute medicine (AM).

 

Trainees will exit the ACCS programme in EM, AM or anaesthetics. The KSS programme ensures that trainees completing the programme have the skills and experience to distinguish and manage an unwell patient.

 

Trainees undertake attachments in acute medicine (AM), emergency medicine (EM), anaesthesia and intensive care medicine (ICM).

 

ACCS forms an element of the curricula for the higher specialty training programme CCT programmes in AM, anaesthesia, EM and ICM training. It is the only route for entry into EM training for trainees exiting the foundation programme.
