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.

Trainee Courses

Upcoming:

SCTS Education / Ethicon Curriculum-aligned Cardiothoracic Surgery Training Courses are an innovative portfolio of 12 courses that have been designed and implemented by the current SCTS Tutors to mirror the ISCP curriculum.

All nationally-appointed Cardiothoracic Surgery Trainees will be given the opportunity to attend 12 specifically designed courses (2 courses per year during their 6 year programme). The portfolio of courses will deliver a continuous programme of learning which has been mapped out to mirror the ISCP Cardiothoracic Surgery curriculum. The programme has been endorsed by the Cardiothoracic Surgery Specialty Advisory Committee (SAC) and attendance at the courses will be monitored through the ARCP and CCT process. These courses complement knowledge and skills learned during their training programme and will use a variety of techniques to deliver education.

Details of the aims and delivery of all of these courses are available on the Tutors' page. Read more
