ACCS REGIONAL TRAINING DAYS

Please find below the ACCS Regional Training Programme 2021/2022. Please ensure you liaise with your individual departments to arrange study leave on these days.

The School provides monthly regional training days for ACCS trainees in order to ensure the curriculum is fully covered. It is therefore imperative that local departments prioritise releasing of trainees to attend these days. The only exception is where the trainee is on nights. All other shifts including twilight and late shifts should be covered by other staff. Trainees should not be expected to return after attending a training day to complete the remainder of a shift. The new contract also makes provision for trainees to attend a training day if it happens to fall on a scheduled day off and claim a day off in lieu elsewhere.

ACCS CT2 Anaesthetics Introductory Day - Friday 6th August 2021

To be attended by all ACCS CT2 trainees and DRE-EM trainees undertake the rotations in Anaesthetics / ITU in the next 12 months. 

Host: School of Anaesthetics 

Time: 13.00-16.40hrs

Venue: Will be delivered online using zoom. The meeting link has been circulated to trainees via email. Please contact Anna Frost  if this has been misplaced.

We will be running the anaesthetic induction on Zoom on 6th August from 1pm.  Some departments have the facilities for you to watch on site - & this has advantages in terms of encouraging you to ask questions if anything is not clear.

We recommend downloading the Zoom app on your phone, tablet or computer.  Please join 5 minutes before the official start time - you may be asked to wait until we are ready at 1pm however this will help us to start promptly.

All ACCS trainees are invited to this session as ICM will be discussed as well as anaesthetics.  There will be a separate break out room for AM/EM ACCS & DRE-EM trainees.  Core & ACCS anaesthetic trainees will stay together with any ICM trainees who are new to anaesthetics training.

Please mute your microphones but keep your videos switched on.  ​

There will be opportunities to ask questions via the chat function.  We will try to answer the questions on chat throughout the afternoon.

Below is a schedule with approximate timings, however exact timings will depend on time for questions etc.
