Royal Melbourne Hospital Intensive Care Unit is new state-of-the art 42-bed facility opened at the hospital as part of the Victorian Comprehensive Cancer Centre (VCCC) project. It is one of the biggest Intensive Care Units in Australia. It is an adult unit (level 3) caring for general medical, surgical and postoperative patients within the hospital and also receives direct transfers from throughout the state and neighbouring areas. The spectrum of cases admitted to RMH ICU is very wide and makes this a great place for trainees. The types of patients that we care for belong to one of the following specialities:

  • cardiac surgery

  • neurosurgery

  • major trauma

  • complex respiratory management

  • sepsis

  • oncology

  • renal failure

  • infectious diseases

  • multiple organ dysfunction

The Intensive Care Unit has a highly successful teaching program for ICU trainees. Our consultant team is actively involved in registrar and resident teaching. They provide valuable advice and guidance to trainees. RMH ICU education team runs several courses such as MCEC, EMICC and BASIC.

The ICU has four pods and the staffing structure is such that it is very supportive for the trainees. At any one time, the Intensive Care Unit is staffed by two senior registrars and three registrars, one for each pod. From 7.30 am to 12.00 midnight one HMO is rostered for each pod. Registrars have 5 hours a week of protected and paid training time with a formal education program delivered each week.

Candidates who are registered trainees with the CICM or with a minimum of 4 years post-graduate training including a minimum of 6 months ICU or anaesthetic experience in Australian, New Zealand or UK hospitals are encouraged to apply.
