Below are some of the comments we received from delegates at the Careers Day:

 

“Brilliant day – thoroughly enjoyed all of it and has strengthened my intention to do anaesthetics”

 

“Very interesting workshops, useful from the point of view that I previously had no experience of practical anaesthetic techniques.”

 

“Very useful and good value. Most useful – how to apply, suggestions for getting your application noticed, interview information & structure/format”

 

“I thought it was a day well spent. Very informative, varied & stimulating. I would most certainly recommend it!”

 

Excellent event. Very informative. Gave me all the information I required and a great insight into training in Mersey.

 

Overall a very interesting and useful day delivered in a very informative and interesting mix

 

The intensive care presentation answered a lot of questions that I had which was really beneficial. Regional anaesthesia was very helpful and informative.

 

I found the interview workshop extremely useful. Worth the entrance fee alone!

Food was excellent!

 

Overall the careers day was as good as expected, and the presentations were all very informative.

 

Very useful to understand day to day life as a trainee.

 

Very useful to discuss presentation approach at interview.

 

Wide range of interesting subspecialties for future training to bear in mind.

 

Good location and nice lunch/drinks.

 

Historical information was interesting, testimonies provided very useful insight.

 

The interview workshop was the most beneficial

 

Engaging speakers and presentations

 

Overall very interesting and informative day. Thank you. I wish I had attended as an FY1.

 

Overall a very useful day. Great to hear testimonies from anaesthetists of all different levels.

 

Good to get a brief insight into the variety of an anaesthetist’s roles. Well structured sessions with a good teacher to student ratio.

 

I found the Career’s Day gave me much needed insight to life as a Core Trainee in Anaesthesia. It also helped me to think about the variety of work available as a consultant and this is something that is important to me. The refreshments were excellent.

 

Would be good to have more time on some workshops – but really made the day stand out compared to ALL others – even the RCoA one!

 

Very appropriate workshops and were enjoyable too! Very good idea to split into small groups for this

 

Very informative day, helped my decision on career choice and useful interview tips.

 

The talk on the overview of training and exams very eye opening. Not aware of the process of application prior to the event. Workshops very interesting.

 

Good to hear the different stages of the career and the factors facing each

 

Good range of interactive sessions

 

Good views into the specialist areas of anaesthetics

 

It was interesting to have a brief introduction and try out some of the techniques/equipment and I can see the aim was to make us aware of all the skills that can be developed during training. It was useful to make us aware of areas of the speciality we might be interested in developing during our career

 

The food was excellent. I had not seen good salad and vegetables at similar venues for a long time. Really good catering.

 

Hearing from the current trainees about what their job entails and details about what’s expected from them was really insightful

 

The interview session was very useful as I’ve never had a presentation-style interview station and it was good to learn ways to organise our thoughts

as someone who attended this day to get more exposure about anaesthetics I found it was a really good session to get a taster of all of the different aspects of anaesthetics. I am seriously considering it now and have organised some taster days to help me decide. Thank you

 

Overall I have to say that both the presentations and the practical stations were very well organised, and extremely useful, all sessions were well delivered.

 

From these presentations, from my point of view, we expect a general overview of the subspecialties; a good cross-section, emphasising the interesting/challenging bits that would make us think about the certain specialty. Again, overall, we saw very well delivered (in a friendly, informal manner), colourful presentations. Thank you!

 

That might not be the most important part of the, but the food was perfect, and plenty.

 

I found the whole day really useful. Although I am an F1 doctor and quite a lot of the contents were aimed at those applying to anaesthetic training now, it gave me good idea of what I will have to do next year if I chose to apply to the anaesthetic training pathway.

 

Ultrasound teaching with Dr Ridler and Interview workshop particularly good and useful
