UCC Anaesthesiology Newsletter - December/January

In the first UCC Anesthesiology Newsletter of 2023 we warmly welcome those who have changed over to new hospitals in the last month. We hope the next rotation is rich in learning and personal growth. In particular, we wish colleagues who are taking exams in the upcoming months well and congratulate those who passed the Final Fellowship in December. In this edition, Professor Dominic Hegarty discusses the new digital remote patient management platform called Get Ready™. Cork is the first European pain management centre to provide such an integrated health solution. UCC medical students with an interest in anaesthesia have been successful nationally in the CAI Medical Student Competition and NUI Henry Hutchinson Stewart Scholarship Competition. Such an outstanding display of interest in anaesthesia at medical student stages is heartening and also highlights the importance of supporting medical students throughout clinical placements in anaesthesia. We highlight some of the departmental festive celebrations, and we also hear of a link between a UCC Medical graduate, a Maharaja and the Timoleague Mosaics. As always, we welcome clinical, academic and social submissions from colleagues in the region and beyond.

UCC Anaesthesiology Newsletter - October/November

Welcome Dr Clare Keaveney Jimenez, SpR, CUH. Dear readers, A warm welcome on a blustery November evening to the UCC Anaesthesiology Newsletter. In this edition, we celebrate Consultant Anaesthesiologist Dr Anita Griffith’s Lifetime Achievement Award from the Mercy University Hospital. Anyone who has had the pleasure of working with Dr Griffith will agree that such an award is more than well-deserved. Those of us who have trained with Dr Griffith aspire to emulate her qualities in our everyday practice. Our social highlights include a Halloween-themed “Coffee and a Gas” gathering and we also wish our colleagues well who have been appointed to new roles at home and abroad. As the dark evenings draw in, the annual Cork “Run in the Dark” never fails to brighten the city up as hundreds don their Hi-Vis attire. Among the sea of runners this year were teams from the CUH and the MUH Anaesthesiology Departments. The international “Run in the Dark” initiative was established by Irish athlete Mark Pollock in 2010 to promote his organisation “Collaborative Cures”. I hope that you enjoy browsing this edition. As always, we welcome submissions from all UCC-affiliated Anaesthesiology departments and from readers in Ireland and beyond.
