Victoria Introduction to Anaesthesia

The Introduction to Anaesthesia (formerly called the part zero course) is run each year in all Australian 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 Victorian introductory trainees to attend this free course.

PLEASE NOTE: Due to COVID restrictions this course will be an online delivery via Zoom. Each of the sessions will also be recorded so those that might not be able to attend any of the sessions will be able to watch them at their leisure. 

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:

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



There is no cost to attend this course.
