Return to Clinical Practice Workshops

Next scheduled date : Thursday 1st October 2020, 9am - 12pm

Following a successful pilot in April 2015, general surgical trainees returning to clinical work after a period in research, maternity leave or other prolonged absence will be offered an intense all-day workshop to practice their surgical skills. In common with all the Skills Programme teaching, these workshops will be consultant-led.

Trainee in Difficulty Workshops

By appointment only

Some trainees experiencing technical difficulties with their surgical techniques are being referred to the Surgical Skills Programme by their Training Programme Directors. With targetted, one-to-one, consultant-led teaching, it is hoped that these trainees can be brought up to standards required to ensure patient safety. This is a pilot study at this stage and the outcomes will be closely monitored.
