Welcome to the Faculty of Surgical Trainers!

The Faculty of Surgical Trainers is a venture set up by The Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh to promote and enhance the role of the surgical trainer. We are the first of our kind in the UK and are here to support and develop surgeons in their role as surgical trainers. We want to increase the profile and recognition of surgical education and training and disseminate the message that excellent surgical training means excellent and safe patient care.
