Redland helps trainee Anaesthetists to achieve

6 November 2014

Redland Hospital has proved itself to be a productive training ground for doctors undertaking studies in anaesthetics with three trainees achieving outstanding success in their studies in this year alone.

Dr Christine Pirrone benefited from assistance provided at Redland Hospital when she was ranked in first place among this year’s Queensland candidates for the Australia and New Zealand College of Anaesthetists (ANZCA) training program.

Redland Hospital’s Dr Jenny Stedmon said Christine’s achievement was impressive considering the strong competition for entry to the training program.

Two other doctors who recently completed their terms at Redland Hospital also passed their Primary Fellowship examinations for FANZA (Fellow of Australian and New Zealand College of Anaesthetists).

Dr Fousia Manthodi said Jacob Carter, who is now based at QE11, and Kavi Jayatelika, who is at Nambour, both passed at the first sitting, which is an excellent result as the Part 1 exam is pretty tough!

Christine Pirrone plans to attempt the Part 1 exam next year and will be leaving Redland to take up a new placement at Redcliffe Hospital from February.

“The coaching I received from people like Fousia and Jenny was a big help for me,” Christine said.
