Paediatric Anaesthesia

The advanced paediatric training consists of six month slots comprising

  • two months general paediatric anaesthesia
  • two months paediatric cardiac with PICU on call
  • two months PICU

You must be in year ST5 or more at the start of the module and you must have completed the module before your expected CCT date.

Please note that there is a limit on how much time you can spend training in any one subspecialty. Therefore, if you plan to do a paediatric year abroad these local slots may not be for you. Please discuss with the programme director.

The one year training at Great Ormond Street is also good and is advertised from time-to-time. That covers all areas of paediatric anaesthesia and is treated as an interdeanery secondment from the paperwork point of view.
