Prestigious program awaits our junior docs

29 September 2021

Redland Hospital's Department of Anaesthetics is celebrating another success story with four junior doctors accepted into the highly prestigious and sought after ANZCA training program.

Supervisor of Training Dr David Wood said the selection process for admittance onto the Queensland Anaesthetic Rotational Training Scheme (QARTS) was highly competitive with only 45 places allocated from around 280 applicants and 95 interviews.

"To have all four of our junior doctors,  Dr Elinor Cripps, Dr Tim Tran, Dr Ronald Lam and Dr Claire Rose (not pictured) accepted onto this training program for 2022, which will lead them to eventual accreditation as Specialists in Anaesthesia, is testament to their dedication to clinical duties and research in recent years.

"It’s a remarkable achievement for a small department; and the second year in a row we have been able to achieve this." 

Dr Wood said the five year program consisted of multiple requirements including two intensive exams, multiple workplace based assessments, scholar role or research activities and signoffs for 12 different specialised study units in areas such as cardiac and neurosurgery.

"Each of them is currently completing a 12 month PHO anaesthetic term, which will undoubtedly provide a very valuable stepping stone for transition onto the training program and although gruelling, the program is very well supported and a very rewarding experience for all."
