Education, Training and CPD

We provide a comprehensive programme of surgical education which both helps to train young surgeons and enhances the knowledge and skills of established surgeons. At the outset of a surgical career there are key technical skills to master, which we teach through didactic courses. We also offer courses to assist with postgraduate exam preparation. As careers develop specialist knowledge is enhanced through symposia and courses across the surgical disciplines.
