The Royal College of Anaesthetists 2010 curriculum was launched in August 2010. The College expects that basic training in obstetric anaesthesia should be delivered in a block of a minimum of twenty supervised clinical sessions. Trainees are expected to complete a formal assessment of competence in obstetric anaesthesia before commencing obstetric anaesthesia on call, as evidenced by completion of the IACOA Certificate.
