Dates

Four  physiology modules are delivered mainly on Tuesdays.

Core trainees are advised to bring their own refreshments or to make their own arrangements for food and refreshments. 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.

Travel

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.

Trainee feedback

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.
