Anaesthetic training for use in the developing world, courses in Bristol and London

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, initially in Bristol, and then at the Royal College of Anaesthetists since 2017. In 2023, we are proud to be teaming up with Medical Aid International to bring you our course from their venue. https://medaid.co.uk/

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. Working in a developing country can now be counted towards your training in the UK. We hope that for those planning to take on the challenge of working in the developing world,  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.
