The Faculty of Surgical Trainers (FST) is a Faculty that sits within The Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh, created 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.
Webinar: Equity, Diversity and Inclusion in UK surgery
The Faculty of Surgical Trainers (FST) upcoming webinar on Tuesday 14 November will discuss the recent work done by the surgical societies, royal colleges, and independent groups into the area of equity, diversity and inclusion; including sexual harassment.
By the end of this webinar, attendees should be able to:
• To support and nurture a diverse and inclusive community of surgical trainers.

Excellence in surgical training is an achievable aspiration for all and membership of The Faculty of Surgical Trainers is universally recognised as a professional badge of honour.
