Parking is limited at the deanery so it would be helpful if as many of you as possible could car share.

Convenor; Mr Mike Williamson and Myles Sinclair

Participants: compulsory attendance at the 5 Core Knowledge Training Days over the two years of core training for all CTs. (Present CT2s and LATs are expected to attend at least 2 of the 5 days this year).

Availability: Each of the 5 Core Knowledge Training Days will be run every year. Available places will be for up to 45 trainees per training day (except Day 5 limited to 36 places).

Registration: On-line at the Severn School of Surgery website.

Objective: To provide education and knowledge acquisition for clinical topics and professional topics that reinforces the ISCP curriculum. These training days do not a comprehensively cover the ISCP curriculum but are there to encourage learning and provide an insight into areas of practice that trainees may not otherwise be exposed to, have training opportunities in, or have had no previous experience of.

Travel: No car-parking arrangements are provided at the venues. Most hospital venues and the Denaery have limited car-parking facilities. Good bus and train links are available across the Deanery region. Trainees are advised to plan their journeys to Core Knowledge 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 Core Knowledge 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 is available on-line at the School website and is returnable to Chad Elliott at the School of Surgery.
