The Northern School Of Anaesthesia & Intensive Care Medicine
The Northern Schools of Anaesthesia (NSA) were established in 1996, by Dr David Greaves and Professor Chris Dodds, to co-ordinate anaesthetic education and training in Northumberland, Cumbria, Tyne and Wear, Durham and Cleveland. There were originally two Schools which were combined to make up the Northern Schools, based in two hospitals, the Royal Victoria Infirmary in Newcastle and the James Cook University Hospital in Middlesbrough.There is now one School known as the Northern School of Anaesthesia & Intensive Care Medicine (NSAICM).
The School is part of Health Education North East and on its behalf runs postgraduate training in anaesthesia, intensive care medicine and pain medicine in the Northern Deanery.
The NSAICM trains for excellence in Anaesthesia, Intensive Care Medicine & Pain Management. Our Trainees are supported throughout their training across the region by an enthusiastic team including the School Executive Committee, College Tutors, Educational and Clinical Supervisors, as well as dedicated administrative staff.
Trainees achieve not only their CCT, but also a mature and experienced approach to their careers and enjoy the diverse beauty of our region in the process
