Regional Anaesthesia Symposium and Ultrasound Workshop 2018

An engaging combination of lectures and EDRA-approved small group hands-on workshops. Among other things, I learned about continuous spinal anaesthesia – practical considerations of real-world application of this, and other techniques, from international expert speakers. I highly recommend attending the ISRA Symposiums.

Dr. Janna Finlay, Specialist Registrar in Anaesthesia and Critical Care

ISRA European Diploma Regional Anaesthesia Part 1 Preparation Course, July 2018

I recently went to the ISRA EDRA preparation course in the CAI and could not recommend it enough. The course was well organised, professionally run and managed to cover a significant breadth of the curriculum through sample MCQs over the course of a single day. It was very reasonably priced with discounts for ISRA members available too.

Dr. Andrew Purcell, Specialist Registrar in Anaesthesia and Critical Care

ISRA European Diploma Regional Anaesthesia Part 2 Preparation Course, July 2018

Fantastic one-day focused revision course that scanned all the curriculum topics! Great preparation for the exam, a must for anyone preparing for the European Diploma in Regional Anaesthesia.
