Further information to follow
A three day induction bootcamp is organised at the start of the programme, in August, to welcome new trainees and prepare them to make the most of the training programme. The induction covers practical surgical skills, emergency clinical skills (CCrISP and ATLS) and workshops for most of the smaller surgical specialities. Non-technical and professional skills are also covered. The bootcamp is run by current trainees and consultants.
The three day induction bootcamp normally takes place over a Friday, Saturday and Sunday. The arrangements may differ in 2020/2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Please contact Programme Support for further information. The induction is a mandatory part of the teaching programme and all new trainees are expected to attend. Tainees attending will be entitled to Study Leave. If you have not been rostered to attend this course (with these days counting as working days), and therefore require time in lieu, this should be claimed from the trust, with the attendance certificate provided as evidence.
