Highland Surgical Bootcamp
Due to popular demand the next Highland Surgical Bootcamp will be running in May 2013. The next course dates are from the evening of Friday 10th May to the evening of Tuesday 14th May, 2013. For more information visit Surgicalbootcamps.com
Organisation: NHS Highland, Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh, NES
Venue: Centre for Health Science & the 4 star City Centre Hotel, Inverness
Aimed at: CT1/2 (or ST1/2) trainees in General Surgery and Orthopaedics, and FY2 trainees with an interest in surgery. Knot-tying skills are required. Booking priority may be given to CT1 / ST1.
The aim is for delegates to gain confidence in a number of key skills fundamental to early success as a Surgical Trainee, but less taught in other courses. As the name suggests, the programme will be intense, sociable and enjoyable, and simulation will feature strongly.
Faculty will be drawn from this and other centres, and will include leaders in their fields. The resources in the Inverness Clinical Skills Centre include wet lab, simulated ward area and experienced actors. In addition an optional outdoor day will be provided by Active Outdoor Pursuits.
