A course on Developing World Anaesthesia has been running for a long time in Bristol (formerly known as the Frenchay course). The current course has been running in a one-day format since 2011. This year (2015) the course also ran at the RCoA in London due to unmet demand for the course in Bristol.
Recently, interest in working as an anaesthetist in the developing world has increased, perhaps due to the inclusion of this type of work in the current Royal College of Anaesthetists Curriculum for a CCT in Anaesthesia (2010). Working in a developing country can now be easily counted towards your training in the UK. We hope that for those planning to take on the challenge of working in the developing world, that this course will provide a useful and stimulating addition to your preparation. The course is suitable for all grades of anaesthetist from junior trainee to consultant.
The course is generously supported by Diamedica, a South West UK based company producing anaesthetic equipment that is used widely in resource poor settings throughout the world, www.diamedica.co.uk.
