Of note: This course was previously scheduled for the 23rd of October, 2015 but had to be changed (to 29.01.2016) due to a lack of available faculty....The date for the second Surgery-in-General CT2 Clinical Skills Training (usually held in Bath) is still tbc



Compulsory for all CT (including LATs) on the ‘SiG’ (surgery in general) programme. All SiG CT’s will have to attend a CT1 and CT2 training day in the relevant years through the programme.


Each core clinical skills day is run twice throughout the year to allow choice in attendance. (The other CT2 date is to be confirmed).


Core skills days are linked to the ISCP curriculum and use simulation and seminar based formats to teach commonly used clinical skills. These can be linked to simulation based WBA’s and the main themes are consistent in the CT1/2 training days regardless of geographical location in which they are given.

CT2 themes – Varicose veins, hernia repair, arterial anastomosis, GI anastomosis (inc. rectal stapling), negative pressure dressing and laparoscopic skills.


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 Surgical Skills Training Days in advance and if coming by car are advised to offer a lift to colleagues.
