School of Anaesthetics & Intensive Care Medicine
A Commitment to Excellence and Support
As an integral part of postgraduate education at NIMDTA we are recognised by the Royal College of Anaesthetists, Faculty of Intensive Care Medicine and Faculty of Pain Medicine. The overriding ethos of our school is a commitment to provide excellence in anaesthetic and intensive care medicine training, delivery of the RCoA and FICM curricula and support for our trainees to achieve their full potential.
The Northern Ireland School of Anaesthesia is highly regarded and known for its focus on patient safety and quality of care. Our trainees are able to work effectively and compassionately for patients in a wide range of contexts including: the perioperative journey, obstetrics, pain management, critical care, resuscitation, transfer medicine and beyond. We support broad based training interests and we encourage trainees to gain experience in fellowships, overseas out of programme training, and are fully supportive of flexible training and working.
We oversee over 130 trainees across the teaching hospitals in our 5 Trust sites. Throughout their training all our trainees are normally expected to rotate through each site.
Enthusiastic Training Faculty
We are fortunate to have an enthusiastic training faculty of College Tutors, Educational and Clinical supervisors and mentors throughout the province. All these individuals work closely with the School Board and trainee representatives to ensure our training programme remains trainee focused. Our programme placements are monitored externally and reviewed internally to ensure that standards are maintained, and NIMDTA liaises closely with each individual hospital to achieve this.
Open Door Policy
Our School operates an open-door policy and we are more than happy to be contacted for information and advice whether it be considering a career in anaesthesia or intensive care medicine, considering Northern Ireland as a training place, flexible training, or information regarding an inter-deanery transfer.
