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.
