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.
Key areas of study

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.
This course is intended to provide anaesthetists with the clinical and professional skills they need to achieve high levels of success in consultant practice.
The course content has been carefully considered to reflect the needs of NHS trusts when recruiting consultant staff and also the wider priorities of the NHS in developing clinical leadership, service development and education.
