Specialty Training in Anaesthesia - Recruitment
Yorkshire and the Humber is a geographically large region - anaesthesia training is separated into three localities or hubs centred around each of the Tertiary Hospitals.
These three locations are termed Leeds Hub (West Yorkshire), Hull Hub (North and East Yorkshire) and Sheffield Hub (South Yorkshire). Details of the hospitals within each “hub” area are detailed in the “about my school” section.
Yorkshire advertises ST3 Anaesthesia posts twice annually - for February and August Intakes. Specialty Training in Anaesthesia is a 5 year programme (details can be found on the RCOA website). Currently, training is split into Intermediate, Higher and Advanced Training though there will be a new curriculum from August 2021 which will lead to a change in the structure of the programme. Completion of the programme will result in a Certificate of Completion of Training in Anaesthesia, and will permit application for Consultant posts in Anaesthesia.
Posts available are advertised on ANRO, and will be detailed as Sheffield Hub rotations, Leeds Hub rotations and Hull Hub rotations. The posts will specify the location of the first 3 years of training. The 4th and 5th year are not specified and will depend on advanced module preference. All posts will include 6-12 months in an adjacent hub.
Details of the hospitals on each rotation can be found in the “About your programme” section, as can information about the changes to the rotation that were made in 2018. Please note the hospitals rotated through during ST 3-7 are slightly different to those rotated through at Core / ACCS level.
Interviews are expected to be online in 2021.
