Webinar: Surgical Training Through COVID – Challenges & Opportunities

7 December 2020

Delivering surgical education and training during the COVID-19 pandemic has been challenging, however much effort has been put into considering how to maximise training opportunities.

This webinar, hosted by the RCSEd on 7 December 2020 was an opportunity for trainees and trainers to feedback ongoing concerns or issues, as well as a forum to discuss what is being done, or could be done to enhance surgical training at a time when NHS clinical activity is diverted to other priorities.

Contributions included Trainees, JCST chair, Heads of Schools of Surgery and the Statutory Education Bodies.

The panel included speakers;

  • Professor Rowan Parks (Chair)
    RCSEd Vice-President.
  • Mr Tim Graham
    RCSEd Council Member, Chair of Standards and Chair of CoPSS.
  • Mr Jon Lund
    Chair of Joint Committee on Surgical Training (JCST).
  • Professor Simon Gregory
    Deputy Medical Director, Health Education England
  • Miss Lolade Giwa
    Vice President ASiT.
  • Mr Ran Wei
