Bicetre Hopsital is a 900 bed university teaching -hospital with most surgical activities, including orthopaedic, general, urologic, ENT, ophthalmologic, neurosurgical, paediatric and gynaecological surgery units. The Department of Anaesthesia also runs the Surgical ICU. The Maternity Unit has opened in May 2009 and 2000 deliveries are planned to occur for the first year but will then increase to 3500 deliveries each year. There is a good working relationship with obstetric staff. The scientific level of obstetricians and paediatricians is high. Obstetric anaesthesia is highly developed in this hospital where numerous high risk patients deliver. Clinical research in obstetric anaesthesia is well recognized. The Department of Anaesthesia as a whole is highly recognized. Apart from obstetric anaesthesia, several staff anaesthesiologists have academic activity in various domains (i.e. trauma patients, regional anaesthesia and ultrasound, pharmacology and pharmacokinetics, acute and chronic pain, cerebral function). A Research Lab is also available and led by the Department of Anaesthesia.
