Regional training days are events organised and delivered by expert faculty from all regions of our fabulous city, mapped to your curriculum. Some events are virtual, utilising MS Teams, whereas some will be delivered in person (hence capacity limited). If an event is labelled pan-London, trainees based in any rotation (NW, NC, NE, SE or SW) at the equivalent stage in the curriculum can attend.

To book onto an event, click on the booking link and follow the instructions. If you are not sure what events are relevant to your needs, speak to your educational supervisor or college tutor in the first instance. You will also need to book study leave from your department, so please follow local policy and provide sufficient notice. You may not necessarily receive invitations for relevant events, so ensure you check this site regularly. If you miss an event, some are recorded and uploaded for you to view on the north or south London MS Teams channel.

Imperial Novice Course (NW)

The Imperial Novice Course has been devised to familiarise you with the essential knowledge, drugs, equipment, and skills necessary to provide safe anaesthetic care to patients. You will be expected to be familiar with these basics within weeks of starting your Anaesthesia rotation. The course content will support you to attain the Initial Assessment of Competency which must be obtained within your first 3-6 months of Anaesthesia training.

 

This course will not only provide you with the very basic knowledge you need to achieve your Initial Assessment of Competency but also a taste of things you should be considering during your everyday practice. We know and understand that to begin with it’s about surviving and getting through the list (both novices and patients alike – we were novices once too and remember how tough some days can be!).

 

The course is open to all trainees in London- please contact the course directors for further information and to book a place:

info@imperialnovice.com
