Holland and Tanzania
- Seven universities in Holland are using e-LA as an anaesthesia training resource. e-LA is being used alongside traditional teaching methods and providing an invaluable revision aid for professional exams for the European diploma and Dutch anaesthesia qualification.
- In a separate programme, one of these universities, the Radboud University Medical Center, mentors and funds access to e-LA for anaesthesia residents at the Kilimanjaro Christian Medical Centre (KCMC) in Tanzania, in one of the poorest parts of the world.
This has strengthened KCMC's learning resources and tools.

- The College of Anaesthetists of Ireland has given all specialty trainees access to our award-winning e-LA programme. This reflects the high regard with which this award-winning e-learning resource is held in the profession.
- Residents in anaesthesia at Aga Khan University in Nairobi are using modules from e-LA, including the Fundamentals programme and the exam preparation module, to support their training.
- Clinical trainees at Landspitali University Hospital are using e-LA to support learning and development. This follows the adoption of the UK Acute Care Core Stem (ACCS) curriculum for trainees.
For the Icelandic trainees, e-LA is an extremely valuable learning tool, particularly in preparation for the Primary FRCA examinations. The self-assessment elements of e-LA match the standards of the UK examinations. Trainers at the hospital are also using e-LA to support their teaching of the ACCS curriculum.
Developed by the Royal College of Anaesthetists, the Faculty of Intensive Care Medicine, the Royal College of Physicians and the Royal College of Emergency Medicine, ACCS is a three-year programme which covers anaesthesia, acute medicine (general internal), emergency medicine and intensive care medicine. It provides an alternative route into anaesthesia and acute medicine instead of core anaesthesia or core medicine training.
