The NIAA is committed to the academic advancement of trainees whether they are purely clinically orientated or future physician-scientists. Involvement in academic activity is a cornerstone of anaesthetic training and leads to improved clinical care at both a local and national level.

Anaesthetists already have deep roots in scientific knowledge through studying for the Fellowship of the Royal College of Anaesthetists and the clinical application of science. Building on these foundations, anaesthetic trainees are well positioned to be involved in research focused on the improvement of patient care. The NIAA aims to highlight and increase the opportunities of anaesthetic trainees to be involved in high impact research.
