If you're thinking about training less than full-time (LTFT) it's likely you have other commitments you need to devote time to, while also trying to get the most out of your training.
Anaesthesia has a long tradition of supporting doctors who wish to train LTFT and of all hospital specialties is second only to paediatrics for numbers of part-time trainees.
LTFT training programmes in anaesthesia are usually well organised and most departments will have had experience of LTFT trainees.
The human resources policies for LTFT training may vary between deaneries and employers so it's important you check the correct local procedures to follow. Most schools of anaesthesia will have a flexible training advisor who can help you with this, while established LTFT trainees can be a wealth of information.
Dr Rifca Le Dieu from Barts Heath was one of the faculty members at the LTFT Matters 2019 seminar. She has put together a rota template, which is a useful resource for all LTFT doctors.
If you'd like some guidance on LTFT training you can contact an LTFT representative in your area by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
