Upper Gastrointestinal Anaesthesia

The Oxford Upper Gastrointestinal Surgery Centre is at the Churchill Hospital in Oxford.

There is an active oesophageal cancer programme with more than 60 thoraco-abdominal procedures carried out each year.

There is increasing demand for Bariatric Surgery, including sleeve gastrectomy and gastric bypass procedures.

Every week there are several major surgical procedures such as liver resections and Whipple's procedures.

Clinical curriculum

This UGI Anaesthesia Fellowship training programme will be for a period of 12 months.

On completion of the programme the Fellow should have achieved a level of knowledge and experience for competent independent management of patients undergoing moderate and extensive UGI surgery.

The Fellow should have gained sufficient experience to safely manage patients with significant co-morbidities for major surgery.

The Fellow should have been actively involved in research and teaching and should have reached a level of competence suitable to take on the post of a consultant with an interest in UGI anaesthesia and perioperative care.

The Fellow is expected to become involved in teaching and training, research and audit, and in the general management of patients undergoing UGI surgery and related procedures, including preoperative workup, intensive care and high dependency provision and post-operative analgesia.
