We have transformed the Imperial Novice Course into a qualitatively successful online learning package. We fully recognise that novices, starting in February/March 2021, will have drastically reduced training opportunities as elective surgery is likely to continue to run at a reduced level. With this in mind, the content has been devised to ease you into the specialty well-known for its complicated knowledge, drugs, equipment, and skills. The purpose of the course is to support you to achieve the Initial Assessment of Competency which must be obtained within your first 3-6 months of anaesthesia training. To supplement the online content, we will be running online interactive sessions where we will hold small group case-based discussions and a panel session to answer questions. The dates for these interactive sessions will be released when the current Covid surge eases.
