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 Surgical 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.
