We have also run very successful Surgical Skills &Foundation Skills for Clinical Teachers courses and plan more Clinical Skills courses for FY2s.
  • We will shortly have updated video links with surgery, so that procedures can be observed from our teaching rooms in real time. This will include two-way audio communications, so that Q&A can take place between the theatre and the trainees.
  • Hospital wide teaching occurs throughout the week - details can be found on the documents below, which show an overview timetable and a more detailed information sheet to reference.
