Undergraduate Anaesthesiology and Critical Care

It is important for us that students have adequate anaesthetic knowledge and practical experience to treat future patients with safety and confidence.

In their middle rotation (4th year) students attend 3 weeks of lectures to give them the necessary theoretical knowledge.

Students spend 3 weeks with our department in their final rotation. During the first week they receive a theoretical overview (tutorials) and also participate in practical and computer sessions. During the last 2 weeks they rotate through our theatres, intensive care unit and recovery for practical participation in patient care. This time is used to refine their knowledge and skills introduced in their 4th year and first week.
