Event Overview
Welcome message:

These Surgical Boot Camps are a joint collaboration of NHS Highland, The Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh and The Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Glasgow. They aim to define and accelerate the acquisition of key technical and non-technical skills at the start of a surgical career, hence they are the recommended introductory course for both of the Scottish Core Surgical Training Programmes. It is recommended by the Scottish Core Surgical Training Programmes as the introductory course for CT1. Places are also available for FY2/ST1/CT1 applicants from other surgical programmes, and from other parts of the UK and abroad.
