Training and Careers
In collaboration with The Faculty of Intensive Care Medicine, Intensive Care Society, and Association of Anaesthetists, Royal College of Anaesthetists have developed this website to provide the UK intensive care and anaesthetic community with information, guidance and resources required to support their understanding of and management of COVID-19.
World-class training and career support
We understand that anaesthetists have a central role in the future of healthcare.
This is why the College remains focused on supporting its members through all stages of their careers, from the time they consider a career in medicine through to retirement.
The College is responsible for setting recruitment, training, and assessment standards. This is how we are able to attract and then support the best doctors from medical schools into our specialty.
We work closely with our members to:
- support careers and workforce planning - supporting the careers of doctors from the time they consider a career in anaesthesia, through to retirement
- enhance education and training - the specialty of anaesthesia is renowned for delivering high-quality education and training through an enthusiastic network of anaesthetists who hold specific educational roles and responsibilities.
Support is also provided through our management of the anaesthetic curriculum, our Regional Advisors (Anaesthesia) and our College Tutors. The development of the Lifelong Learning platform went live in 2018, which replaced the old e-Portfolio and incorporates logbook functionality.
If you have questions about anaesthetic recruitment, or the training and assessment standards we develop, please contact us.
