Course/Event Date: Wednesday, October 4, 2023

Course/Event Description

The Royal College of Anaesthetists is holding an informal session for medical students & foundation year doctors who are considering a career in anaesthesia.


Anaesthetists form the largest single hospital medical specialty, and their skills are used in all aspects of patient care. Whilst the perioperative anaesthetic care of the surgical patient is the core of specialty work, many anaesthetists have a much wider scope of practice.

Sessions include:

  • life as an anaesthetic trainee
  • the training programme
  • recruitment and application process
  • pre-hospital emergency medicine
  • intensive care medicine
  • question and answer group sessions
  • the future of the specialty, skills required and life as a consultant.


This event may be of interest to your foundation year doctors.  The programme is still currently under development but booking information can be found on our website .
