FAQs.

The following FAQs may be helpful:

How do I find out who my training programme director (TPD) is?

There are three TPDs. Each one is responsible for training in different hospitals. Your TPD will therefore change as you move hospitals.

 

A list of which TPD is responsible for which hospital can be found on the main Core Surgery page here.

How do I find out who my Assigned Educational Supervisor is?

The TPD will assign you an Educational Supervisor (AES) and this will appear on ISCP alongside your placement. Please do not change your supervisor without discussing this with your TPD first.

How do I book on to Core Surgical Teaching?

Full instructions can be found in the Teaching and Training section. Ensure you apply for study leave at least six weeks before the teaching session.

What happens if I have to cancel a booked teaching session?

You should contact the centre where training is being held and offer your apologies (by email if possible). You should also complete a non-attendance form so a record can be kept. Full details can be found in the Teaching and Training section.
