The regional training day programme has recently undergone a significant review process.  Miss Caroline Burt, Mr Mark Cartmell and Mr Jonathan Ockrim form the regional training committee; they oversee the programme that is designed to offer the highest quality of training opportunities to all trainees. The trainee training and induction representative’s  work alongside them to ensure trainees’ needs are met.  The overall number of training days has been reduced to four a year with the emphasis being that all trainees attend 3 of the 4 sessions.  In addition to these, the training committee will highlight high quality training opportunities available to trainees throughout the year.

The aim of these days is to offer the opportunity to experience aspects of surgical training that you may not get elsewhere and will include a mix of surgical sub-specialty education and simulation training to develop technical and non-technical skills.  Trainees are encouraged to get involved in organising training days and should contact the training team if they wish to get involved. 
It is your responsibility to arrange the study leave required from each trust to attend these sessions.  You must give enough notice to your trusts so that you clinical commitments can be amended as required.  Your attendance at these sessions will be monitored and reviewed as part of your ARCP process.
