Applications open: 2015 WFSA BARTC Fellowship, Bangkok, Thailand
Applications are now being accepted for the 2015 General Anesthesia Fellowship at the Bangkok Anesthesia Regional Training Centre. The fellowship is open to anaesthesiologists from Asian countries.
Trainees will study full time for 1 year in the Department of Anesthesiology of the hospitals designated in the program. They will spend the first 6 months in a medical school hospital in Bangkok, and then 4 months in 2 provincial hospitals. The last month will be back to the medical school to prepare for and sit the final examination. The trainees will have hands-on training in the operating rooms, and will be allowed to take part in patient care.
This programme is taught in English, to enable the training of trainees from various countries, targeted for the Asian region. However, communication with Thai patients needs understanding of Thai language, and it is strongly encouraged that trainees try to get at least preliminary use of Thai language in their homeland, before leaving for Bangkok.
How to apply:
The trainee will have to submit documents in advance to prove that he/she has:
1. A permanent post in a government teaching hospital.
2. A degree in medicine.
3. Good spoken and written English language skills.
4. Prior experience in anesthesia for at least 3 years in his/her own country (evidence of previous training, number of cases and techniques done in the last 3 years).
Applicants will be interviewed via telephone.
The fellowship will commence on 15 January 2015, and will last for 1 year. Applications close on 7 September 2014, and the successful applicants will be notified of the results by 30 September 2014.
