IMPACT is designed to improve patient safety by enhancing the skills of senior medical trainee doctors who manage acute medical admissions.
All major acute presentations are covered as IMPACT is mapped to the UK core medical curriculum.
IMPACT is aimed at CT1/2 level trainees in Acute Medicine, General Internal Medicine and Acute Care Common Stem (ACCS) programmes.
Foundation doctors intending to embark on a career in any of the aforementioned specialties can undertake the course after completion of 8 months of acute medical specialties in their FY2 year but must bear in mind that the standard of teaching is pitched at CT1/2 level.
You should have successfully completed an Advanced Life Support (ALS) course before you attend an IMPACT Course.
