February 2019 Novice course – Faculty needed



Happy New Year to you all! We hope you had a good one.

Now that we are in the New Year, the time for the February Novice Course is fast approaching.

We are looking for faculty (ideally post FRCA trainees and Consultants) who would be able to join us on one or more of the following dates for all/part of the day:

14th February 2019 Introduction to Anaesthesia Medical Library, Royal Free Hospital
22nd February 2019 Airway & Basic Regional Anaesthesia Sheila Sherlock Education Centre, RFH
28th February 2019 Pharmacology, Basic Paediatric Anaesthesia & Emergency scenarios Sheila Sherlock Education Centre, RFH
8th March 2019 Anaesthesia for Emergencies Sheila Sherlock Education Centre, RFH

This would be to deliver some small group teaching or a short lecture.

It is usually good fun and a great chance to meet some of the new trainees.

If you are interested or know someone who might be, please e-mail elizabeth.cervi@doctors.org.uk

Thanks again,

Elizabeth & Bindiya

Happy Xmas



Wishing you all a very Merry Xmas and a peaceful and Happy New Year.
