Advert for New takeAIM Fellows
The current team of fellows are always looking for enthusiastic AIM trainees (ST3+) to join takeAIM.
takeAIM is a successful trainee led initiative set up in 2015. The original cohort of takeAIM fellows have developed a strong brand to boost the profile of acute internal medicine amongst junior doctors through the organisation of a number of national conferences as well as local takeAIM sessions. The development of a takeAIM website alongside a twitter and facebook account has provided a great platform to advertise the events.
The takeAIM fellows all share the dedication and enthusiasm of their predecessors in raising the awareness of AIM by engaging with junior doctors and medical students. As well as continuing with the organisation of national conferences and local takeAIM sessions, the fellows are developing a network of takeAIM champions to form a nationwide community to promote acute internal medicine within their local area as well as attend careers fairs for medical students and junior doctors.
Later this summer, we will be recruiting one additional fellow who is passionate about our speciality. Prospective candidates must be able to work both within a team and independently. We are looking for trainees with innovative ideas to take this project forward. Candidates must have the confidence to actively promote the speciality, speak in public and engage with junior doctors in a variety of ways.
takeAIM is strongly supported by the Society for Acute Medicine who fully value the contribution that it can continue to make in encouraging juniors to the speciality.
Appointed fellows will have an additional session a week to work on takeAIM with the expectation that it will contribute towards fulfilling specific components of the AIM curriculum such as leadership and management. It is worth noting that a proportion of the work will need to be done out of hours simply due to its nature (for example Skype conference calls).
