Core Surgery Regional Training Days

 

The Core Surgery Regional Training day programme is held monthly at the Postgraduate Medical Education Centre, Derriford Hospital unless otherwise stated below. The program runs on a 2 yearly basis and is designed to assist trainees in the Peninsula to both pass the MRCS and help with the Higher Specialty Training interviews.

The training days will run from 10:00am - 16:00pm, all trainees are required to keep a log on their attendance noting any reasons for non attendance.  In line with your global objectives, it is mandatory to attend 70% of CST regional training days and attendance at the training days will be considered in the ARCP. If you are unable to attend because of issues with being released from work by your trust you must contact Mr Eng Ong and the Education Programme Coordinator. It is expected that your trust should arrange that non training grade doctors etc. help with on call commitments on these days where possible, to allow you to attend.

If the Regional Training Day is cancelled, trainees are expected to inform their respective team in the hospital and report to work.

Once you have passed the MRCS exam some of the sessions may not be as relevant to your further training and we would encourage you to contact Mr Ong /Ms McLarty to discuss the possibility of you attending the regional training program of your intended surgical specialty, but until this is confirmed you must continue to attend the core program.

Please see the School Structure page for Head of School, Training Programme Director, College Tutor and School Management contact details.
