Core Knowledge Day – Emergency Surgery


We are looking forward to welcoming you to the RUH for the Core Surgical Knowledge Day on Emergency Surgery.  Please find below the programme for the day and instructions on how to find the RUH including parking and directions to the Postgraduate Centre.

Prior to attending the day you should all have completed the eLearning modules relevant to emergency surgery. These are available at The aim of the day is to extend your knowledge and decision making process for emergency surgery and

aid you in becoming better ST3 trainees (and it will help in your exams and interviews too).


The day is an interactive training day and you will be expected to take part in small group sessions throughout the day. I encourage you to get involved and try to take as much as possible away from the day that is relevant for you.  The sessions do not involve

patient contact and so casual dress is acceptable.

Coffee and lunch will be provided throughout the day and we will try to cater for specific dietary if you can let us know as soon as possible.


Please arrive promptly for the day so that we can ensure the day is finished on time.  If you have any further questions please contact Kelly Tillson 

at the Post-graduate Centre, Richard Bamford  Skills and Courses Lead,  or Susan House.


We look forward to seeing you there


Mr Paul Maddox
