The Procedural Skills courses taking place in the Royal College of Physicians' (RCP's) Northern region have been developed to provide an introduction to safe common practical procedures within a controlled workshop environment.
These 1-day courses are aimed at doctors beginning their training as core medical trainees. Training in some practical procedures may have taken place in the foundation grade but it is important that skills are developed and widened so that the trainee in a core medical training programme becomes competent and feels confident to perform commonly required procedures.
The course runs from 8.30am to 4.30pm and includes hands-on practice, group and individual tuition, and personal feedback.
CT1s training in the Health Education England North East (HEENE) region may attend this course free of charge as part of their mandatory training. Other trainees doctors may also find this course of interest.
