Wessex Cardiology Trainees

Training collaboration with Cardiothoracic Surgery

Dear all, 

An exciting announcement to make. 

Following recent meetings with my CT surgical counterpart, in the near future we will be having some joint training days with cardiac surgical trainees from Southampton, Oxford and Bristol. 

There is a good deal of overlap in our curriculum and they will also provide a great opportunity for networking and socialising afterwards. 

We are aiming to have the first 'face-to-face' meeting in Q3 this year but in the interim...



We have been invited to attend the upcoming 'virtual' surgical training meeting via Microsoft Teams. 
12/06/2020 with Professor Ohri 
Topic - Lifetime management of Aortic Valve disease. 

Please email Mr Hani Ali-Ghosh (CT fellow) at Hani.Ali-Ghosh@uhs.nhs.uk for more information and to sign up.

QA Arrhythmia Training Day + upcoming eduction.

Dear all,

Some good news all.
Education is slowly getting up and running.

In terms of 'formal' teaching over the next couple of months the following are planned:

1) The QA Arrhythmia training day on 26/06/20 is hopefully going ahead. Aiming to be face to face if space allows. It may be tricky doing the whole day virtually.

2) There will be two virtual evening meetings in June and July with some internationally recognised speakers. Dates TBC.

Both of the above will be included in the expected attendance for trainees and logged on the training day form for next years ARCP.

BJCA Trainee Survey 2020.

Dear all,

I hope you are well.

Further to the emails from the BJCA the 2020 training survey is still live.
Is it essential all trainees complete it as it is an extremely powerful tool to identify and assess issues with current training but most importantly lobby for change.

For those that are yet to complete it, please find it here.
