Workshop Descriptions
Consultant interview

New to GAT, the AAGBI will be running GAT Consultant Interviews. Trainees will submit their CV’s and job specifications to the expert panel in advance of the meeting. They will attend a practice interview. There is no extra fee for the slot but spaces are limited, please email meetings@aagbi.org or call 0207 631 8862 to book your place.

Organising your year abroad 

This workshop will give you an idea of opportunities available to trainee anaesthetists, who are thinking about volunteering in the developing world. It will be a great chance to discuss every aspect of working overseas including financial, safety, ethical and equipment issues. This workshop will detail how to go about incorporating it into your training OOPT/OOPE and the module in developing world anaesthesia.

Mentoring taster sessions 

GAT are offering conference participants one hour mentoring sessions with one of a team of highly trained and experienced mentors, all of whom use mentoring for themselves. The mentors are a selection of trainee and senior anaesthetists, some of whom have held posts as Royal College Tutor, Deputy or Regional Adviser, and AAGBI Council members. Mentoring conversations are confidential.

Sessions will be most useful to conference participants who:

  • Are strategic about their own development
  • Want to discuss a potential opportunity or a dilemma
  • Have specific educational or work needs
  • Are at a cross road in their career - Career/life planning

These sessions cannot be booked online, if you would like to book a place please email with a preferred time and date meetings@aagbi.org

Vascular access

Anaesthetists are increasingly involved in the insertion and removal of PICCs, Ports, Hickman lines and dialysis catheters used for long term access in adults and children. In addition they will treat patients with such devices in situ. This workshop aims to provide practical advice on choice and indications for devices, trouble shooting of devices, X-ray interpretation, ultrasound guidance of axillary and arm veins, and surgical skills for insertion and removal.
