-Paediatric Anesthesia-


The Vision

The pediatric anesthesia  requires specific knowledge and skills. Currently, the majority of Anesthesiologists are practical enough to maintain the knowledge acquired during initial training. Yet many of these anesthesiologists must be able to take charge of young children and babies when they are away from a tertiary center specialized in pediatric anesthesia.

The Mission

  • The mission is to enable anesthesiologists to update their knowledge and skills necessary for the practice of pediatric anesthesia, and thus help meet the demands of guidelines.


  • Specifications, developed by the French Society of Anesthesia and Critical Care, specify the required knowledge and skills and the criteria defining a center of training.
  • To create an educational postgraduate training program for the anesthesiologists of UAE and the region in pediatric and neonatology anesthesia.


  • The anesthesiologists, fellows and residents who have followed the courses and validated the clinical practice will be able to pass the written examination of the Diploma of Pediatric Anesthesia of the medical school of the University of Montpellier.

The value

This educational program will be based on the actual program of the Medical school of the University of Montpellier in addition to a quality program of management of these techniques in the institution where the anesthesiologist is working when possible.
