National and International Teaching/Lecturing FELLOWSHIPS in Hand Surgery
Visitors/Observers/Fellows are welcome to join the practice at Sulis 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. Hand Therapists are also welcome to observe clinics and theatre lists.
This attachment is particularly suitable 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 – there is an informal link with the Nuffield Orthopaedic Centre, Oxford.
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 here. Nor are many regular Departmental and regional teaching meetings and in GP practices.
Interested individuals should contact Mr Sammut directly.
