Careers in Cardiothoracic Anaesthesia and Critical Care

Careers Information for Trainees

Advice on careers in cardiothoracic is, at times, difficult to come by, particularly if you have limited exposure to the subspecialty in the early portion of your training.  Therefore, to help bridge that gap, please find linked below a number of articles pertaining to careers and training in cardiothoracic anaesthesia and critical care.

I hope they are of use to you and they will be continually updated.  If anyone wants any first hand advice on career pathways in cardiothoracic anaesthesia and critical care, then please contact either the ACTACC trainee representative or your local trainee link-person (please quote the name of your link-person).  We will do our best to help you find the answers you need.
