Information about training and teaching in surgery at Medway NHS Foundation Trust.


"The Department of Surgery at Medway NHS Foundation Trust has a strong reputation for teaching and training. Our specialties include General & Vascular Surgery, Paediatric Surgery, Urology, Otolaryngology, and Trauma & Orthopaedic Surgery. Most surgeons have a subspecialty interest, such as robotic surgery in Urology and Colorectal surgery. We are a Trauma Centre and therefore run daily emergency (CEPOD) and trauma lists. These are organised as training lists, and provide ample opportunity to gain experience in surgery.

"Medway is part of the Kent, Surrey & Sussex Deanery, and we are therefore closely involved with the regional teaching programmes. Each department also conducts a local teaching programme. Many of our Surgeons are involved with training at the Royal College of Surgeons, either as members of the Court of Examiners, or with the Specialty Advisory Committees (SAC). We also run a Masters course in Surgery at Canterbury Christchurch University. Our Postgraduate Department and Library are modern, well-funded and supportive of learning. For example, this year we have installed a cutting-edge simulation suite for
arthroscopy. Our Department has a long tradition of undergraduate medical education. We therefore enjoy close links with Kings College London, and the Kent & Medway Medical School."
