Educational Resources

Our comprehensive educational resource for budding regionalists...

A one day beyond introductory course aimed at those who want to consolidate and improve skills in Ultrasound Guided Regional Anaesthesia (UGRA) 

RCOA Revalidation Logo Large

Our course includes

  • scanning and sonoanatomy on live models.
  • extensive phantom practice.
  • multidisciplinary faculty drawn from both local and UK experts in their field.
  • fantastic lunch and refreshments available all day.

Suitable for both trainees + consultants

Course prerequisites are previous attendance on an introductory UGRA course.

Whether you want to consolidate your learning from a recent introductory course, or want to broaden your basic skill set, we offer a low student to instructor ratio, to deliver your educational needs. 

Come and learn UGRA at the UK's premier hospital.

We consistently receive excellent feedback and are very relaxed with a very friendly faculty.

This course should count towards the additional "Hands-on" course required for sitting for the EDRA (European Diploma of Regional Anaesthesia). This is currently being finalised by ESRA and we should know before the course starts.
