Clinical trainees benefit from anaesthesia learning

Clinical trainees at Landspitali University Hospital used our anaesthesia programme (e-LA), following adoption of the UK Acute Care Core Stem (ACCS) curriculum.

e-LA proved to be an extremely valuable learning tool, particularly in preparation for the Primary FRCA (Fellow of the Royal College of Anaesthetists) examinations. The self-assessment elements of e-LA match the standards of the UK examinations. Trainers at the hospital also used 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 that 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 medical training.
