Advanced Module in Major Surgery

Northumbria Healthcare Trust

Contact:  Dr Sindhu Nair, College Tutor

A six months advanced training module in major general surgery is offered.  This is based around major colorectal and bariatric surgery.   There will be opportunities to undertake relevant pre-assessment clinics, attend multi-disciplinary meetings and relevant management meetings.  It is expected that the trainee will undertake and present a quality improvement or management project during this time.

Trainees will be expected to work with a higher degree of autonomy and to participate in the teaching, training and supervision of more junior trainees.

In addition, trainees will be supported in developing their non-technical skills in preparation for the consultant role.
