Opportunities for Anaesthetists in Training

The College encourages Anaesthetists in Training to undertake placements within programmes where there is evidence of high quality teaching, training and/or raising standards.

The College is keen to support anaesthetists and Anaesthetists in Training undertaking out-of-programme posts in low and middle-income countries. The CCT programme has an ‘Anaesthesia in developing countries’ unit of training that can be completed whilst undertaking a placement overseas as an OOPT if it can be demonstrated that the learning outcomes will meet the curriculum requirements.  Those wishing to undertake an OOPT will need to apply to the Training Committee in the usual way.

We have a robust process in place to ensure that we only support posts of high quality and we allocate an experienced Remote Educational Supervisor (RES) in the UK to advise each individual doctor throughout their fellowship.

Working in Zambia has been a wonderful cross cultural learning opportunity. It offers ample exposure to develop teaching skills and anaesthetise challenging clinical cases
