Our fellows and trainees

ANZCA is directly responsible for the training, examination and setting the continuing professional development standards of anaesthetists and specialist pain medicine physicians and for setting the standards of clinical practice in Australia and New Zealand. 


ANZCA trainees

Before doctors can apply for the ANZCA anaesthesia training program, they must have completed two years of general hospital experience after graduation from medical school. This can include up to 12 months in anaesthesia or intensive care but the aim is to ensure a grounding in general medicine and in disciplines other than anaesthesia. Trainees complete at least five years of training and are supervised by a network of qualified anaesthetists at accredited hospitals throughout Australia and New Zealand.
