Study Leave: £150 will be ‘top-sliced,’ from our study budget to pay for our Friday teaching. All direct debits to Chester/Mr Braithwaite should be stopped. This therefore leaves you with £655 for personal study leave/courses. There are obviously years around the exam when it is likely that you will ‘overspend.’ Please put in the request for reimbursement even if you are over your limit. Miss Jackson is in charge of signing off study leave forms.
ARCP: faceless 29 & 30th June, face to face 5 & 6th July. The panel aren’t looking for anything different in a faceless ARCP but obviously you aren’t there to direct matters if certain elements are mislabeled/difficult to find. Before the ARCP try and view your portfolio in your supervisors login as this is what the panel see and is different from our login view. It sounds obvious but just try and label things well and put everything in the right place.
Professionalism Module: There is a structured professional module for 8 weeks on a Friday afternoon teaching in the autumn which will be combined with the Manchester trainees. It is compulsory for ST3 and 4 and ST7 and 8. If you miss a week for leave etc you can catch up with what has been done in order to get your certificate which will count as a management course. (see CCT requirement)
Trauma Boot Camp: 29th September 2017 at Aintree run by Mrs Scott– £50, very useful subsidised course.
Critical Condition CBDs: There are going to be additional critical conditions added to the curriculum - CEX in major trauma (so try and do at Aintree or the Royal) and CBD’s in diabetic foot, necrotizing fasciitis and major trauma. Although not on ISCP yet they soon will be.
Royal Banding Dispute: The committee are supportive of the banding dispute at the Royal and are aware it is ongoing. Re-monitoring has just happened and we will keep you informed.
CCT Courses: ATLS and ETS (European Trauma Course) both count/are equivalent.
Teaching Course: Train the trainers course or equivalent – any generic instructor course or ATLS instructor course counts.
Management Course and Research Methodology Course: There is no specific list, you just need to show evidence of being on/done an appropriate course and if you haven’t then you need evidence that you have addressed the curriculum.
