The Faculty of Surgical Trainers, FST

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. The Faculty is the first of its kind in the UK and its purpose is to help support and develop surgeons in their role as surgical trainers. It works 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.

It also champions and promotes training in non-technical skills, as well as traditional technical skills, to further enhance patient safety; and provide a framework for the training and education of surgical trainers.

The Faculty will also play an important role as the landscape of Surgical Training changes in the future. As such it is already highly active in preparing for the GMC’s plan to approve trainers by 2016.

The Faculty is now open to all those who have an active interest or involvement in surgical training in the UK and internationally.
