Professional Development Programme

Following the very successful pilot the SCTS Education Professional Development course is now open. Details are on the attached flyer. The course places are heavily subsidised for SCTS members and there are limited places for each date. All the pilot places were gone within one week so immediate application is advised. Non SCTS members pay the full price so this course is a benefit of SCTS membership.

This programme is aimed at consultants, senior trainees (ST5 onward) and equivalent, and is rolling so modules can be taken in any order.

The course has been designed to meet many revalidation requirements and is tailored to the needs of cardiothoracic surgeons.

This course has top modules from our award winning partner and includes sessions on understanding the healthcare environment, management, leadership, transformation and finances.

Following course participation delegates will be better equipped to deal with the rapidly changing NHS and effectively lead their services.
