Description

Overview

This webinar series is aimed at foundation doctors and core surgical trainees who are aspiring to pursue a career in plastic surgery. It will consist of 14, one hour sessions that focus on the ISCP plastic surgery curriculum. We aim to improve basic knowledge of the different sub-specialties within the field of plastic surgery. By covering these topics in greater detail we hope to better prepare applicants for plastic surgery ST3 posts.

Aims

The general aim of this series is to improve plastic surgery teaching for junior doctors below ST3 level. This will enable easy and free access to good quality teaching delivered by consultants and senior registrars. The nature in which it is delivered will allow access to trainees from a wide variety of backgrounds both within the UK and internationally.

The 14 sessions will each explore a specific sub-specialty within the field of plastic surgery in order to give trainees a better prespective of what a career in plastic surgery entails. This will allow them to make a more informed decision when applying for ST3 posts.

We aim to cover the basic management of each of the core learning objectives set out within the national ISCP plastic surgery curriculum so trainees are better prepared when taking up an ST3 post.
