National and International Teaching/Lecturing and Examining Commitments:
FELLOWSHIPS in Hand Surgery
Fellows are accepted to join the practice at Circle Hospital in Bath.
These would generally be senior Trainees in Hand Surgery, but more junior trainees from the level of medical student are considered for briefer periods.
This attachment is open to those in the final stages of training in Hand Surgery – preference is given to those in preparation for FRCS (Plast), FRCS (Orth), or the BSSH Diploma in Hand Surgery. The period can be shared with other units in the same region.
Interested individuals should contact Mr Sammut for information on requirements and vacancy.
INFORMAL TUTORIALS are conducted on a regular basis for senior trainees, preparing for FRCS (Plast), FRCS (Orth) and the BSSH Diploma in Hand Surgery, outside of the Fellowship attachments. These are not listed. Nor are Departmental and regional teaching meetings.
Interested individuals should contact Mr Sammut directly.
