e-LA is a web-based educational resource produced by the Royal College of Anaesthetists in partnership with HEE e-Learning for Healthcare (e-LfH).

Available for free to all UK anaesthetists practising in the NHS, e-LA delivers the knowledge and key concepts that underpin the anaesthetic curriculum and will help trainees prepare for the FRCA examination and career grade anaesthetists to satisfy CPD requirements for appraisal and revalidation.

e-LA offers the following components:

  • image1e-Learning Sessions - Over 750 (more in development) knowledge and scenario based sessions covering the first two years of the anaesthetic curriculum. Each session takes around 20-30 minutes to complete. For details of the individual sessions within each module click here (the live sessions are highlighted in green).
  • e-Library- free and direct access to thousands of full-text journal articles which have been cross-referenced and mapped to the anaesthetic curriculum
  • e-CPD- articles and associated MCQs to support general and core topic based continuing professional development for trainees and trainers
  • e-Assessment - formative assessments with feedback that will test the user's understanding of the knowledge based sessions and introduce students to the standard expected at the FRCA exam
