The service is recognized by the Swiss Institute for Medical Training (ISFM) as a post-graduate training center, in anesthesia (1 year) and in intensive care(1 year and six months).


Candidates receive in-ward training on a rotating basis, where time spent in the operating theatre alternates with that spent in intensive care. For those who are interested, the centre also offers an additional training curriculum in perioperative Transesophageal Echocardiography and prepares candidates for the European diploma in echocardiography.

Admission process and requirements

To be included in the programme, applicants must have accrued 1 year of specialist training in internal medicine in another acknowledged education & training centre. Candidates may apply to the Cardiac anaesthesia service secretariat and include a CV in their application. The selected candidates will be contacted for an interview.
