Summary of course

This course has been designed to introduce surgical trainees, surgical nurse and theatre practitioners to safe surgical practice within a controlled workshop environment. It aims to teach, assess and certify the ability of trainees to use safe and sound surgical techniques that are common to all forms of surgery. The certificate of successful completion is issued by the Royal College of Surgeons of England.

Who is it for?

This course is strongly recommended for all surgical trainees who take up their first surgical appointment and is open to foundation doctors and core trainees intending a surgical career or surgically related career (FY1-CT2). It is the responsibility of the course participant to ensure that they fall within the relevant criteria for the course as detailed above. If it is discovered that a participant's experience is below the required level to attend the course, the College reserves the right not to provide the participant with a Certificate of Completion even if the individual has passed the course assessment. The course has been agreed on an intercollegiate basis and trainees who complete the course will be issued with certification that will be reciprocally recognised by all four Royal Surgical Colleges.
