Trainee membership benefits

When you join as a Trainee member, you become part of a community which aims at promoting, sharing and communicating information with each other. As a Trainee member you will receive regular updates on developments in anaesthesia and medicine in general as well as offering the chance to develop and contribute to a representative network of established anaesthetists and trainees.

Trainee membership benefits

We host events specifically aimed at meeting the needs of trainees such as providing Part 3 courses to prepare advanced trainees for life as a consultant. We provide exam and education support and scholarship opportunities each year.

We also recognise that help shouldn’t stop as soon as you have entered training and so we ensure that assistance and advice can be found in determining future career options when embarking on your professional life. Even more importantly, we aim to encourage and develop future leadership potential in our members and do this through the constant call for opinions and advice from trainees, established anaesthetists and major representative bodies.



  • Awards, prizes and research grants that support scientific endeavours and highlight excellence in the field
  • International CIG scholarships for trainees every year
  • Earn CPD points by completing interactive anaesthetic modules online, where you can take quizzes and test your knowledge
