ST1-3 Training Programmes

September 2018 - August 2019

The timetable has been updated with more confirmed speakers and venues.  We have been made aware teaching on 9 January will clash with the AKP exam.  It is too short notice now to move speakers and venues so the teaching will most likely go ahead and we will do a straw poll of how many trainees will be attending teaching/exam.  Please note teaching on 10 April will start at 13.30 rather than 13.00 due to a clinic commitment the speaker has to honour. 

Feedback - please ensure you complete the online feedback.  This is the only way we know if the teachign we deliver is helpful.  if you are not receiving the link please let us know.  we expect the feedback to be done within 24 hours of the teaching. 

Trainees will be expected to submit none attendance forms for any sessions you are unable to attend to Adele Simpson these must be submitted after the sessions (not months later).  The link to the form is below. 

The outline programme link below will give more detail fo the topics which will be covered in each session.  Please make a note of all teaching sessions in your diary and keep an eye on this website for any changes.
