In the Netherlands, the national training programme of Intensive Care Medicine is organized by the Gemeenschappelijke Intensivisten Commissie (GIC). Participation in the examination to obtain the European Diploma in Intensive Care (EDIC) organized by the European Society of Intensive Care Medicine (ESICM) is compulsory according to the regulations of the GIC. The GIC curriculum committee is responsible for the national theoretical training programme. The hospitals have organized, each in their own way, local courses of theoritical fellow education. In this article, we describe our experience with the first curriculum in the Vrije Universiteit Medisch Centrum. We discuss the philosophy, organization and logistics of the chosen educational model, report the evaluation of the first curriculum, and formulate suggestions for improvement.
