Hello all. We hope you find the resources on this site useful for passing the first part intensive care medical examination.

We have included answers to most past SAQ questions. There is also a set of Anki cards which covers the entire physiology syllabus, resources on pharmacology as well as a bank of multiple choice questions which will be useful if you are sitting the new format. We also have other resources like some study notes, etc.

Our website is broadly divided into sections which can be accessed from the Menu above. These resources suffer the shortcomings of being written by humans under the not insignificant pressure of exams and life.  If they are useful to you, please enjoy them and get in touch if you have any suggestions or feedback. If you find any issues with the detail, or want to contribute to the missing questions, please let us know.  Please also get in touch with us if you are having any difficulties accessing any of the resources.

Again, good luck with the preparation, and best of luck with the exam.

The CICM Wrecks – Ben, Ken, Richard and JC.
