Overview

The School of Anaesthesia is one of the largest in the UK and provides excellent training in two city hospitals, several district general hospitals and three specialist hospitals. During basic, intermediate and higher training, trainees spend time working in different hospitals but ST6/7 trainees are based in either the Royal Infirmary or Queen Elizabeth University Hospital.

Intermediate and higher subspecialty training takes place in the three specialty hospitals; Institute of Neurosciences, Golden Jubilee National Hospital and the Royal Hospital for Children. The region has tertiary referral centres in most subspecialties and in addition to intensive care medicine and pain management, offers advanced training in cardiothoracic, neurosurgical, paediatric, maxillofacial, obstetric anaesthesia and pre-hospital and retrieval medicine.
