CAT News

CAT News


CATNews is the official newsletter of the Committee of Anaesthesia Trainees (CAT). It is aimed at Irish Anaesthetists, both at trainee and Consultant level. Its goal is to highlight issues of both interest and importance of the anaesthesia community. 


The theme of the publication will vary each month and is typically related to a topical issue. Regular sections include a Fellowships series in which prior Fellows give a description of their posts, updates from the various CAI committees on which CAT Members sit and an update from out IMO and Forum Trainee Subcommittee representatives. Sample example questions and reports will regularly be included. We have also introduced a correspondence section for any issues you wish to draw attention to. 


CATNews will be emailed to all SATs and Fellows of the CAI on a quarterly basis. Current and past issues can also be accessed below.
