About this Course

Delivered online, this course is designed for busy anaesthetists working full or part-time in the NHS or an equivalent health service. Our innovative educational approach saw us win an award for best online learning programme in 2013. You can expect a challenging but highly rewarding educational experience, featuring problem-based learning scenarios based on realistic case studies. Within weeks of starting, you’ll be able to apply your new knowledge and skills to your working practice.

This course offers qualified anaesthetists based anywhere in the world a flexible way to gain formal postgraduate qualification in Regional Anaesthesia. A fully participative programme, each weekly session will be tutor-led but peer-driven. You’ll collaborate with your fellow students to consider and work through our case scenarios, and through this you’ll develop consultant-level critical thinking and knowledge.

Delivered entirely online, the course will provide you with a robust and complete educational experience, with no requirements to travel outside your country of residence in order to complete it. Accredited modules will include online formative and summative assessments, and can build towards a PG Certificate, PG Diploma or Master’s (DM) qualification.

During the course you will delve deep into the most up-to-date anatomical and neurophysiological research underpinning current thinking in regional anaesthesia. You’ll learn about the different factors that go into optimising the quality of regional anaesthesia in the heterogenic patient population, which anaesthetists face on a daily basis. We’ll also teach you how to write and conduct research – and how to introduce and manage regional anaesthesia services at the institution where you work.

A unique element of our course is that you can determine your own study timetable, based around each two-week topic.

Course Structure

Our flexible training approach will allow you to determine your direction of study, based on the level of formal regional anaesthesia qualification that you wish to achieve. The course is made up of six standalone modules which can be taken in any order, as and when they are running during the year. Additionally, as you are not required to register for a certificate, diploma or degree – you can simply elect to study a single module if you wish.

  • Successfully complete three modules (there are two configurations to choose from) and should you not wish to study further, you can qualify for a Postgraduate Certificate.
  • Complete all six modules and you can qualify for a Postgraduate Diploma. Continue on to your dissertation however and you’ll graduate with a Master’s level degree.

Master’s degree in Regional Anaesthesia

Should you wish to achieve a Master’s qualification, you will spend a year researching and writing your dissertation paper. Through this, you will need to illustrate the depth of knowledge that you have developed throughout your time spent studying our taught modules.

We encourage all students to consider their dissertation work for publication, either through the university or in an academic journal.
