Anatomy and Physiology teaching to support learning for ISCP curriculum and for MRCS examinations. Emphasis is given to continuing professional education rather than ‘coaching’ for the MRCS examinations.
5 anatomy modules and 4 physiology modules are delivered on Tuesdays and it is advised that CT1s ensure that they combine anatomy and physiology teaching sessions. On the Tuesdays where anatomy and physiology modules are provided, it is recommended that the whole day be taken as study leave to allow for self-study and travel in the mornings.
Anatomy and physiology teaching are linked by dates. CT1s are advised to take study leave for the whole day (except for the anatomy module 1 which is not linked to physiology teaching).
The Centre for Comparative and Clinical Anatomy, University of Bristol, hosts the site containing all information on the Core Anatomy Training course as part of a blended learning programme. Please visit: www.ole.bris.ac.uk for details of future sessions. Access details have been sent out to Severn Deanery trainees. (Additional informational can also be found at http://www.surgery.severndeanery.nhs.uk/about-us/surgical-specialties/core-training/anatomy-and-physiology/)
Trainees are expected to read up and study on the module topics before attendance in order to gain maximal educational benefit from the teaching.
Anatomy venue location
Core trainees are advised to bring their own refreshments or to make their own arrangements for food and refreshments during the 30-minute gap between physiology and anatomy modules on Tuesdays at 5pm. There are numerous cafes and sandwich shops in the vicinity that are easily accessible during the short walk from the physiology venue to the anatomy venues.
No car-parking arrangements are available at the University of Bristol and surrounding areas are for ‘residents-only’. There are NCP car parks available 10-15 minutes away by foot. Good bus and train links are available to Bristol and the University. Trainees are advised to plan their travel and if coming by car are advised to offer a lift to colleagues. http://www.bris.ac.uk/maps/directions/
A record of attendance will be kept by the Deanery. Attendance details are provided to your Programme Directors and will be assessed at the yearly ARCPs. Certificates will be provided for each module to trainees, who attend, for their portfolio.
Trainees will be asked to provide anonymised feedback on each module. This is important for the School of Surgery to ensure that the standards of delivery and content of the teaching is maximized for Severn School of Surgery core trainees in the future.
Failure to attend a module requires a trainee to complete an explanation form which is available on-line at the School website and is returnable to Chad Elliott (Chad.Elliott@southwest.nhs.uk) at the School of Surgery.
