A Career in Anaesthetics
So what does a typical day look like for an anaesthetist? It's a hard question to answer due to the sheer number of sub-specialities and hugely varied careers within the speciality, particularly as you advance to higher training and consultancy. What all days will have in common though, is the utilisation of a specialist set of skills that no-one else in the hospital will have, and as such, other doctors and the patients will be extremely grateful for your input.

Example trainee weekly diary
This is somewhat more predictable than the consultant diary as 'core training' unsurprisingly consists of learning some 'core' skills.
