Preparing to be a Consultant Surgeon

Your training programme will give you the knowledge and skills to pass
your exam and obtain your CCT, but there is a huge and daunting step
from being a trainee to becoming a consultant. This course from
Aesculap Academia and Leicester Orthopaedics will help teach you those
skills that are not covered by Higher Surgical Training, with an
experienced faculty willing to share their tips, tricks and experiences.

From getting the job and finding your feet, to everyday consultant life
and finally case studies and interactive discussions, we hope to give you
a flavour of the skills and attributes that you will need as a new
consultant surgeon in the NHS.

We look forward to seeing you in Sheffield in April.
