About this course

As a student on this course, you’ll take part in fully-online, tutor-mediated discussions, centered around realistic cases, within our VLE. This innovative course is based around six advanced modules, covering all areas of Regional Anaesthesia and a host of relevant transferrable skills. The course is designed to complement your day-to-day clinical practice, so each session is delivered asynchronously, meaning that you won’t need to log-on at set times. For each module you will be expected to actively contribute to the online forum, which will focus on clinical discussions of cases. Each module comprises several topics spanning the knowledge base in that specialist area, each bringing with it new expertise and insights, which will prove directly applicable to your own clinical practice. As such, each forum discussion will take on a life of its own, fueled by the shared reading, personal experience, and tutor guidance.


This modular course has been designed specifically for anaesthetists advancing in the field of Regional Anaesthesia. The course combines in-depth clinical modules with leadership and research to provide a relevant qualification in RA. The course offers excellent credentials to trainees and consultants in this increasingly important anaesthetic specialism.

The immersive interactive format covers all aspects of RA, strengthening clinical knowledge, critical thinking and decision making skills. The course is delivered entirely from within a thriving online learning community of clinical peers and senior e-tutors.

The Masters offers both trainees and consultants based anywhere in the world the opportunity to study for a PG Certificate, PG Diploma or Masters in RA through a rigorous educational programme lead by experts in the field.

The course employs a gold-award winning educational approach underpinning a range of specialist medical and surgical courses offered by the UEA. Our internationally-friendly programme is designed to enhance your consultant level critical thinking through engagement with realistic clinical cases and continual assessment. Modules will provide CPD or, on successful completion, accrue university credits that can build towards an MSc, PGDip or PG Cert.
