Curriculum gap analyses

Gap Analysis summary between Anaesthesia Curricula 2010 & 2021

‘CT3 year’ requirements

These are the additional learning requirements needed to align the 2010 curriculum to the new 2021 curriculum. This will be used during CT3 “top-up” posts to ensure trainees are able to update their existing training and help to complete the new Stage 1 training.
