My Best Trainer and Training Moments Launched

5 July 2017

The FST are interested in hearing from all Faculty Fellows, Members or Affiliates or any surgeon with an enthusiasm for training. We are asking you to share your stories of your trainers, past or present. We are asking for a reflective piece of writing describing the surgeon and the moments of positive impact on you as a trainee. We want to understand how these people have influenced you as surgical trainers.

You can reflect on your chosen trainer with respect to four domains. It is best to punctuate your reflection with actual incidents or stories and reflect on how it has influenced you own practice.

The domains are:

  • Professionalism
  • Resourcefulness
  • Trainee development
  • Communication

Articles can be submitted by email to and may be published on the FST website and Facebook page.
