Core Surgery-in-General Trainees


For all Core Surgery-in-General trainees, there are two compulsory clinical skills training days:

  • Surgery-in-General CT1 & CT2 Clinical Skills Training Day in Gloucester - 5th April 2018


  • Surgery-in-General CT1 & CT2 Clinical Skills Training Day in Taunton - 27th April 2018


Participants: Compulsory for all Surgery-in-General CT1s and CT2s to attend both the Gloucester and Taunton days over their two years of core training.

Availability: The Gloucester and Taunton days will both be run once annually. Each training day has a maximum of 20 places.

Registration: Via the Severn School of Surgery website (see Events section).

Travel: No car-parking arrangements are provided at the venues. Most hospital venues have limited car-parking facilities. Good bus and train links are available across the Deanery region. Trainees are advised to plan their journeys to Clinical Skills Training Days in advance and if coming by car are advised to offer a lift to colleagues. 

Attendance outcomes: 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 training day to trainees, who attend, for their portfolio.

Trainee feedback: Trainees will be asked to provide anonymised feedback on each Clinical Skills Training Day. 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. 

Non-attendance: Failure to attend a module requires a trainee to complete an explanation form which and is returnable to Susan House  at the School of Surgery.
