The certificate was upgraded 1992 to a clinical M D after thesis submission, first and second part exams. The first batch to score it was in 1995.

Members of the department used to work in governmental hospitals of the ministry of health. After the foundation of Suba university hospital in 1975, they established the anaesthetic department in the hospital, it was the first department to have theatre secretory, the recovery unit was well constructed with a staff trained in United Kingdom to meet the demands of the unit.

In the new curriculum, the anaesthetic department has been increased a lot and more time was allocated for teaching clinical and emergency anaesthesia.
