Training Facilities.

The School of Surgery recognises that curtailed work hours and the transition to a more senior led service has implications for skills acquisition of trainees nationwide. It is therefore paramount to supplement skills learnt in the operating theatre with practice on simulators which are provided around the region. Skills training sessions are included as part of the teaching programme of many subspecialties in the school.

Below you will find a list of available facilities within Yorkshire and the Humber’s hospitals:
