The Basic and Clinical Sciences Anaesthetic Course (BCSAC) is intended as one of the tools suitable for the preparation of the European Diploma in Anaesthesiology and Intensive Care by improving the candidate’s understanding and knowledge of different areas of basic and clinical sciences.

While the course usually runs parallel to Euroanaesthesia, this year the BCSAC will be held online over two weekends: 28-30 August and 4-6 September. It will be a fully virtual course. This means no travel, fewer obstacles, and more opportunities.

Participants must attend all online sessions (on-demand webcasts will be made available) to obtain the Certificate of Attendance with the CME Credits.

Registration and all course correspondence will be sent by electronic mail only. Each candidate must provide a valid and personal e-mail address.
