Local Teaching and Novice Courses

 All hospitals receiving “Novice” anaesthetists will run a preparatory educational programme for the Initial Assessment of Competence (IAC). You will receive information about this at the local induction to your Trust. The IAC preparation programme is essential to ensure you are ready to deliver anaesthesia safely, start out-of-hours work and begin training in earnest. The IAC preparation will usually culminate in an assessment of dealing with emergency scenarios. In addition, the South locality runs its own Novice course details of which can be accessed through the box below.

Local teaching

Every placement in each of the ‘hub’ hospitals has a specific departmental teaching programme. It may take the form of a weekly morning meeting, a lunchtime meeting, half day teaching or a study day. Your college tutors are best placed to advise you about the in-house teaching programme in your placement.  A full list of the College Tutors available within each hospital is detailed in the CONTACTS section.
You are encouraged to make full use of the local teaching programmes available as they rely on the dedication of enthusiastic consultants and trainees in order to continue.
