Few words in my last few days of residency

Four years went like a blink of an eyelid. It’s true that I feel older, but definitely I feel wiser and more confident in a job that I adore; being an Anaesthesiologist. I worked in the anaesthesia field three years and a half before I went through the residency program here. I’ve learned a lot and will need to learn more and more everyday after I finish from here.

One thing you should know if you want to go into the pathway I went through that it’s tough and demanding but it’s rewarding. When you are the anaesthetist you are the man for the job most of the time, you know about basic sciences, pharmacology, physiology, and you are the man in the critical situations, emergency medicine is your playground, resuscitation is your mastered game, you think of and see things usually others miss, you do live-saving procedures making other physicians look at you as a magician. So if you are in your medical school or in your internship then try to have an idea about the role of anaesthetist in your training hospital and if it’s appealing to you then here is a description of our residency training program.

The residency training program in our anaesthesia department started in 2004 and it's recognized by both of the Arab and Jordanian Boards of Medical Specializations for gaining the specialty degree in Anaesthesia, Intensive care and pain management. Although the training program is young comparatively with other training programs in the Kingdom and the region, it has proved itself as one of the most powerful programs.

Owing to the devotion of the specialists in our department to raise the standards of the practice and their own highly demanding continuous medical education program they reinforced our residency program which has it's own various activities including:


    1- Daily morning report starting at 7 AM sharp with the presence of all the departments staff to discuss the cases of the day before and the assessment of the admitted cases for the scheduled list.

    2- Followed by, Daily lecture presented by one of the specialists or a resident supervised by a specialist, covering the applied basic anaesthesiology sciences and clinical anaesthesia practice over the whole year. 3- Daily presentation of an article from one of the journals: BJA, EJA or MEJA which the department has subscription with.

    4- On Thursdays the lecture is substituted by a morbidity and mortality report or case discussion.

    5- Monthly Journal club discussing three to four review articles from the journals in the field of anaesthesia and intensive care of that month.

    The department's library is rich in most of the textbooks and references that residents might need, beside a full registry of journals in the field since 1997 that is updated regularly.

    The scope of training and gaining experience is wide since our twelve operating theatres involves specialties from general surgery, OBS&GYN, urosurgery, orthopedic surgery, pediatrics, ophthalmic, plastic, dental surgeries to the more demanding neurosurgery, thoracic and open heart surgery, the department provide it's services in the (out of theatre) basis in the Radiology, Endoscopy and Emergency Departments for minimally invasive procedures. All our services are provided with the presence of full scope of anaesthesia equipments, machines and monitorings.

    Residents start their training and practice under guidance and supervision, they participate in the preoperative assessment of patients, and involved in anaesthetizing patients which could be general anaesthesia, spinal, epidural, nerve block or simply mild sedation, and as residents advance in the training program they get involved in managing more complicated cases and the supervision is minimized as they reach the end of their final forth year of residency.

    Residents are involved in the labor pain relief service, pain management service which includes epidural injections, caudal injections, celiac blocks, and nerve blocks., also residents are part of the CPR team, rotation into the ICU is mandatory for a minimal period of 3 months. On-call duties are required as it has its influence in enriching their experience. Residents has the opportunity to gain experience in transporting critically ill patients by ambulance.

    Annual exams are required to be passed which involves a written part, OSCE, and oral interview to insure that residents had gained the required knowledge and experience that is equivalent to their year of training program. As a last word these exams really trains the residents how to pass their board exams as all of our residency program graduates passed the board exams from the first trial.

    Thanks.
