Anaesthetic Fellowships

Message from the Director

The Nuffield Department of Anaesthetics (NDA) at the 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.

The NDA has a wealth of Fellowship training opportunities to offer to recently-qualified anaesthetists. The department comprises almost 120 Consultant Anaesthetists and over 50 anaesthetic trainees. Many faculty members are world-renowned in their subspecialty field, and have secured peer reviewed funding and high impact publications. Many others are excellent teachers and mentors.

To be eligible for a clinical Fellowship, the applicant must have completed at least 5 years of anaesthesia training and practice, and completed all specialty certification exams in their country of origin before starting the Fellowship. Evidence of English proficiency is required if medical training did not occur in English. Preference will be given to applicants who demonstrate a keen interest in their chosen Fellowship area.

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 the Nuffield Orthopaedic Centre. The John Radcliffe Hospital is further split into the Children’s Hospital, Heart Centre, West Wing 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.
