Course content

This course is designed to provide and prepare surgeons for advanced posts and practice. It is modular with six one-week teaching blocks.

The course is not designed to duplicate the preparation for the Royal College exams; instead it will cover topics not routinely covered by standard training or included in mainstream textbooks. The emphasis is on acquiring knowledge and skills which will prepare students for advanced practice in surgery.
