Introduction to anaesthesia course

We strongly encourage all new trainees to attend this free, one-day orientation course. It covers off everything you need to know about training to be a specicialist anaesthetist, and it's a great opportunity to meet other registrars in your local training cohort.

There's a lot to absorb when you start out as a specialist in training. Our "Introduction to anaesthesia" course has been specially designed to help new trainees navigate their next five years of study.

Course content and structure

This course is delivered by advanced trainees and provisional fellows, so every course is slightly different, but all courses will include information on:

  • How to use the training portfolio system (TPS).
  • How to beat the primary exam.
  • Doctors' health and wellbeing.
  • Training structure and resources.
  • Opportunities to get to know current registrars and provisional fellows.

Who is the course for?

The course is primarily aimed at registered introductory trainees, but where possible, we'll also welcome junior doctors considering anaesthesia as a specialty.
