Lectureships

You'll find information and criteria for our lectureships which recognise outstanding contributions to the wider field of anaesthesia.

Any Fellow or member can suggest nominations for consideration on behalf of Council by the Nominations Committee. The Committee normally meets twice yearly although electronic communications may be used if nominees are being considered for specific events or against accelerated timelines. The Secretary to the Committee co-ordinates this process and is the primary point of contact for proposed nominations.

The nominations guidance and proposal form can be found at the bottom of this page, along with a document detailing previous awardees.

Visits normally last at least a week and include visits to at least three centres. Lectureships are not awarded every year. It is helpful but not essential if proposals include suggestions for hosting and visits to other centres.
