Applications are invited for a CT3 Top-up training post and at least one LAT - CT3 post, within the North of Scotland Anaesthetic Training Programme. The CT3 post is for 12 months and the LAT CT3 post is for 6 months. These posts commence from 3rd of August 2022.
For the CT3 post applicants should have completed CT1 and CT2 Anaesthetic training in recognised UK training posts, be in possession of Core Level Training Certificate (CLTC) and should have passed the Primary FRCA exam at the time of application (desirable). This post is designed to deliver training required for completion of Stage-1 of the 2021 curriculum.

The North of Scotland Anaesthetic Training Programme is delivered through Aberdeen Royal Infirmary in Aberdeen and the Raigmore Hospital in Inverness. Both these posts are currently based in Aberdeen Royal Infirmary. These arrangements are subject to change to facilitate training needs of the 2021 Anaesthesia Curriculum. While every attempt will be made to allocate posts as suggested above, it may also be necessary to rotate across the two hospital sites.
Brief Description of the programme:
The Anaesthetics Training Programme in North of Scotland is delivered through the two sites based in Aberdeen and Inverness. Both hospitals have most major surgical specialties at a single site. This provides a stable environment for training and development.
Aberdeen and Inverness are well served by air, rail and road and uniquely allow quick and easy access to the wild and spectacular scenery of Royal Deeside and the Highlands.
The Aberdeen Medical School provides opportunities to become involved in student teaching. Students rotate through anaesthetics at various times in their degree programme, and anaesthetic trainees are actively involved in delivering medical education.
