The Anaesthesia and Perioperative Medicine course is based on areas of clinical practice and professional skills that are relevant to all anaesthetic trainees. Face-to-face tuition will be provided in cutting-edge aspects of patient care using an evidence based approach to provide knowledge of clinical practice which extends beyond the scope of the training programme and represents many of the most important areas of development for clinical anaesthesia. The course also includes modules which enable students to gain an in-depth understanding of the professional skills essential for a successful career in the NHS.
Assessment and Optimisation (20 credits); High Risk Anaesthesia (20 credits); Research Methods and Critical Appraisal (20 credits); Emergency Care (20 credits); Leading and Transforming Services (20 credits); Communication, Learning and Teaching in Health and Social Care (20 credits); Dissertation (60 credits).
Modules are assessed by 3,000 word written assignments which are centred on case studies or a relevant topic agreed between the student and the module leader.
Students should have a medical degree plus a minimum of two years’ UK National Health Service experience in anaesthesia. Students are normally expected to be in clinical practice throughout the course.
