NSW Introduction to Anaesthesia

The Introduction to Anaesthesia (formerly called the part zero course) is run each year in all regions and New Zealand to welcome new trainees into the ANZCA training program.

In addition to welcoming new members to the college, consultant anaesthetists and current trainees will prepare new trainees for the journey ahead. Topics relate to the ANZCA curriculum, introductory training, assessment/examination and work-life balance. Attendees will also have the opportunity to interact with consultants and trainees.

We encourage all New South Wales introductory trainees to attend this free course.

Course content and structure

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

  • Doctors' health and wellbeing
  • Training structure and resources

There is no cost to attend this course. Please email to register your interest.
