Anaesthetic Training Update - 22 April 2021

Published: 22/04/2021

In November 2020, the four UK Statutory Education Bodies confirmed that changes from 2020 to enable progression and minimise disruption were to continue in 2021, given the ongoing challenges to training due to the pandemic (https://www.rcoa.ac.uk/training-careers/training-anaesthesia/training-news/further-extension-covid-19-arcp-arrangements).

To support the management of ARCPs for 2021, we have developed COVID-19 specific national Anaesthetic Checklists for anaesthetists in training and for Educational Supervisors, and an ARCP decision aid for panels during this period.

You can find specific guidance on COVID-19 and trainee progression for ACCS doctors in training on the ACCS website.
