Anesthesiologist with surgical team preparing the patient for surgery


Quality assurance and progress in medicine are inconceivable without teaching and research. This is why we actively support the continuous development of our teaching programs and research projects.

In teaching, anesthesiology staff participate in practical and theoretical medical training courses.

As an A1 clinic, we offer complete further training for the specialist titles of anesthesiology, intensive care medicine and emergency physician SGNOR.

The University Hospital Basel offers further training courses for anesthesia nursing, intensive care nursing and surgical nursing.

We give lectures and take part in thematic block courses and tutorials for student teaching at the Faculty of Medicine at the University of Basel.

"The certified expert in anesthesia nursing NDS HF performs general anesthesia on patients of different age groups using various techniques. They work under delegation or in collaboration with anesthesiology specialists. Within this framework, they act independently and autonomously."
