Pan London Teaching Programme 2018-2019

The new Pan London FRCS teaching programme that is starting in November.

The aim of this is to centralise teaching to a more convenient location (likely Stewart House), and to take advantage of the excellent speakers from tertiary centres across London.

The FRCS syllabus will be covered in 20 sessions over a 2 year cycle, with teaching days roughly once a month. The teaching dates are below. Please forward these to your rota coordinators. The first day will be colorectal themed. Further details will follow nearer the time.

Monday 19/11/18

Tuesday 4/12/18

Thursday 10/1/19

Wednesday 20/2/19

Friday 15/3/19

Monday 1/4/19

Tuesday 14/5/19

Wednesday 26/6/19

Thursday 25/7/19

Friday 6/9/19

Mr Hagger has stated that teaching is mandatory for all trainees who have not passed the FRCS (St3 and above). Anyone who has already passed but would like to teach/help with viva practice sessions on these days, please contact us.

Kind regards,

Matt, Fiona, Aneesha, Katie, Toby and Daniella
