Anaesthesiology and Intensive Care
The specialty of anaesthesia deals with the peri-operative management of surgical patients requiring anaesthesia. Anaesthesiologists are responsible for provision of anaesthesia to facilitate all kinds of surgical procedures including cardiopulmonary bypass and highly specialised neurosurgical and paediatric procedures.
The programme is recognised by the College of Physicians and Surgeons Pakistan (CPSP). To date, 87 residents have qualified from the programme. From 2011 we have one research supervisor and one research officer in our department to promote research activities within the department.
The programme is intended to provide education and clinical experience in the science and practice of medicine related to anaesthesiology. In our residency programme extensive clinical training is provided with a well-designed academic curriculum. The clinical rotations and academic meeting schedules assure balanced anaesthesia training for each resident. Five years of residency training comprises one year of basic clinical training, and four years specialised training, including training in obstetric epidural and pain management services.
