Department Activities

Our primary goal is to provide safe, state of the art care to every patients we look after.

To maintain our high standards of patient care, we have implemented effective teaching, training, research and quality improvement processes.

We are accredited to teach undergraduates (medical students), Registrars and Fellows as part of their formal training programs. Additionally we provide hands-on training for Ambulance Paramedics, suitable qualified Anaesthetists and for a very limited number of externally funded registrars.

As well our own internal teaching and training courses, we host the Part 1 and Part 2 short and long courses (part of the Australian College of Anaesthetists training program) and provide formal training sessions for the Australian Society of Anaesthesia Paramedical Officers.

We provide some internet-based lecture notes for teaching purposes.

Our research activities include participation in major multi-center trials, original scientific papers and other investigations to optimise patient care.

Our QA activities include regular case review, outcome monitoring and regular review of processes and protocols.

Early each autumn we organise a popular annual CME meeting called the Jobson Symposium. A distinguished overseas visitor is usually invited.

Our Department is a busy but friendly place. We value feedback, so don't hesitate to contact us (please use this form) if you have any suggestions for how we might do better.
