Taster Sessions

We welcome interested doctors in training for taster sessions in anaesthesia. These can be flexibly arranged to suit your availability and can consist of individual days up to a whole week.

During taster sessions, a variety of anaesthesia for a broad range of surgical specialties can be expienced and a meeting with one of the training team will also be arranged to discuss anaesthesia careers. Following the sessions, a certificate is issued to add to your portfolio.

The Royal College of Anaesthetists (RCoA) has some useful information on their website at Training & careers > Considering a career in anaesthesia. There are also links to the Anaesthetic National Recruitment Office with the latest recruitment information, including person specification, the MSRA and interview scoring guidance. The RCoA has also produced two video presentations and application and interviews.
