I, Dr Joanna Thirsk (MBChB MSc FRCA MRCEM DCH DA DipPEC), am a specialty registrar in anaesthesia and intensive care medicine from the North of Scotland School of Anaesthesia. I completed undergraduate training in South Africa. After working in multiple acute specialties, I overwintered as team doctor on the 48th South African National Antarctic Expedition before commencing a clinical research fellowship in critical care at King's College hospital. I started postgraduate specialty training in Scotland in 2012. Apart from adult intensive care medicine, I have a keen interest in paediatric anaesthesia and critical care. I recently completed an MSc in Paediatric Emergency Medicine through the University of Edinburgh. I am an Advanced Trauma Life Support instructor and also teach on SAFE (Safer Anaesthesia from Education) courses.
