  • The IMPACT course is a two-day course introducing the principles and practice of acute medical care and related knowledge, skills, understanding and attitudes. Designed by the Federation of Royal Medical Colleges and the Royal College of Anaesthetists, this course is endorsed by the Resuscitation Council UK, the Intensive Care Society and the Society of Acute Medicine. IMPACT enables trainee doctors (specifically trainee physicians) to assess and treat acutely unwell patients and where appropriate gives guidance on when to ask for help.

    The course is aimed at CT1 and CT2 level doctors in acute medical specialties including Acute Medicine, Acute Care Common Stem (ACCS) and General Internal Medicine. The course is also open to FY2 level doctors who are able to demonstrate a particular interest in pursuing a career in the medical specialties noted above. FY2 doctors must have completed at least eight months practice in acute medical specialties in their FY2 year before they can attend the course.
