2010 CCT Curriculum

The 2010 Curriculum for a CCT in Anaesthetics was approved by the then regulator, the Postgraduate Medical Education and Training Board (PMETB), in February 2010 for implementation in August 2010 for all trainees starting core training. Other trainees were transferred between August 2010 and August 2011 based on each School of Anaesthesia’s trainee transfer plan. The only trainees remaining on the 2007 curriculum are those who were starting Specialty Training Year 6 or Specialty Training Year 7 when the school transferred the other trainees.

The 2010 Curriculum, while meeting all of the GMC standards for curricula and assessment, also provides trainees with greater career options and a wider variety of skills to meet the changing healthcare needs of the UK population.
