Anaesthetic Fellowships

Message from the Director

The Nuffield Department of Anaesthetics (NDA) at Oxford University Hospitals is one of the largest and most respected anaesthesia departments in the UK. Professor Sir Robert Macintosh was the first Nuffield Professor of Anaesthetics, and head of the NDA, which became the first independent department of anaesthesia in Europe.

Over the 80 years of its existence, the NDA has contributed extensively to the training of anaesthetists through courses for the Primary and Final FRCA, Airway Management, Simulation, Human Factors, Clinical Measurement, Anaesthesia in Developing Countries, and Regional Anaesthesia.

Oxford University Hospitals (OUH) is one of the UK's largest teaching hospitals, and consists of four hospitals in the Oxford region. Three of these are located in Headington, about three miles from Oxford city centre, comprising the John Radcliffe Hospital, Churchill Hospital and Nuffield Orthopaedic Centre.

The John Radcliffe Hospital is further split into the West Wing and Children's Hospital, Heart Centre and Women's Centre. In addition, it houses many departments of Oxford University Medical School, and maintains a strong partnership with the University of Oxford, delivering high-quality research, education and training, and bringing innovation into the clinical domain.

OUH leads regional networks in Trauma, Vascular Surgery, Cancer, Newborn Intensive Care, Primary Coronary Intervention and Stroke, and contributes to collaborative networks for Burns Care, Paediatric Neurosurgery and Paediatric Critical Care Retrieval.
