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.
• To support and nurture a diverse and inclusive community of surgical trainers
• To define, promote and uphold the highest standards of surgical training
• To ensure the recognition of excellence in surgical training
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.
