Who is a specialist anaesthetist?
Specialist anaesthetists are fully qualified medical practioners who have spent at least 2 years working in the hospital system before completing a further 5 years of training in anaesthesia. This is the same length of time a surgeon dedicates to receiving their professional licence.
The anaesthestist will receive a diploma of fellowship of Australian and New Zealand College of Anaesthetists (ANZCA), which can be recognized by the initials FANZCA after their name.
Anaesthetists continue to up date their skills by attending professional development programs here and overseas. This is a mandatory requirement for them to continue practicing.
