Dr Alice Bunce – Intermediate trainee

I have thoroughly enjoyed my core anaesthetics training in the East Midlands so much so that I’m continuing my speciality training in the area.

Tertiary centres provide the opportunity to acquire and develop specialist skills in major trauma as well as regional and bariatric anaesthesia, and demonstrate the wide variety of training opportunities on offer in the East Midlands.

Trainees are actively encouraged to participate in non clinical aspects of the curriculum and opportunities are provided to undertake and showcase this work. With the FRCA exams a key feature in early training years,

I’ve benefited hugely from the revision sessions and support networks offered by senior trainees and consultants within the region. In addition, in-house teaching offered by the majority of hospitals is supplemented by the regular deanery teaching.

Overall, the East Midlands is a fantastic place to train and I’m excited to continue with my training in this area.
