RCoA Events and COVID-19 Update

The Education and Events team are delighted to bring you our exciting autumn education programme, a mix of virtual and in-person events alongside a suite of digital resources to complement your learning.

Online events

Our popular Anaesthetic Updates events have been converted to a digital format, offering the same high-quality learning that you are used to, but in a virtual package that can be accessed at a time and place that suits you. Running throughout the autumn, these events will bring you the latest clinical updates, via pre-recorded lectures and live discussions, where you will have the chance to put your questions to a panel of experts.

Our Anaesthetists as Educators series will also take place online, covering the same topics as usual using virtual ‘breakout rooms’ for small group work to provide more focused learning.

Over the summer we began a series of free webinars which we will be continuing this autumn. Previous discussions have included obstetric anaesthesia and emerging from the COVID-19 pandemic – take a look at our upcoming webinars and catch up on all recordings here.

Check out our event calendar to find out more and book your place on one of our online courses.

In-person events

Where possible, we will continue to run some events in person following with government guidelines and using COVID secure venues. Starting in September, our Leadership and Management series will be taking place in locations across the UK that have been carefully selected for their detailed safety measures.

Please review our recent guidance following on from the Government announcement on the tier system. 

Digital educational resources

Get your educational content on the go and hear from experts discussing topical issues by subscribing to the RCoA podcast.

Further your knowledge of specific topics whilst gaining CPD points by watching videos of lectures from some of our previous events.

e-Learning Anaesthesia offers bite-sized sessions, interactive MCQs and access to an extensive online library of articles designed to enhance your anaesthetic learning and support your continued professional development.

We love hearing feedback from our membership so please get in contact at events@rcoa.ac.uk if you have any suggestions for our educational programme, and we hope to see you at one of our events soon!
