EDUCATIONThe department of Neuroanaesthesiology and Critical Care at AIIMS is committed for advancement and promotion of Neuroanaesthesia and Neurocritical Care in India and abroad. The department regularly organizes a scientific event the “AIIMS Neuroanaesthesia Update”, every year starting from 2013. Eminent faculties of National and International repute along with AIIMS faculty participate in the meeting. It is a unique event where the anaesthetic procedures are telecasted live from the operation theatres and the delegates directly communicate with the anaesthesiologists and operating neurosurgeon as a part of the discussion. The department also started regular courses such as Cadaveric Hands-on Workshop on Airway Management and AIIMS Neurological Life Support (ANLS) with the target audience which includes emergency physicians, neurosurgeons, and neurologists apart from the anaesthesiologists. The department encourages faculty of national repute to deliver talks in the Neurosciences Centre based on recent neurosciences issues. The department also encourages faculty of International repute to be part of the departmental academic and research activities as a Visiting Professor.
