Wessex Cardiology Trainees

Training Days 2015

Dr Dominic Kelly has confirmed most of the dates for training days in 2015. 

Please see his message below regarding the programme and the ARCP requirements.

Please don't forget to book study leave as soon as possible once you move on to your new posts next week. 

Please be reminded that your ARCP requirements are attendance at 60% of training days (this includes pre CCST fellows). Also note that registration is required for some of these meetings and this is your own responsibility. I've tried to keep local but the valve study day in London is excellent and we don't have the capacity to run similar locally. Please register for this ASAP as places will go fast.

I would also like to take the opportunity to thank James Rosengarten for his excellent work over the years in setting up and maintaining this blog. I'm sure that everyone will agree that it is an excellent resource and an invaluable source of information for trainees in the region. As he is moving on to pastures new, I will be officially taking on the mantle of fully maintaining the blog from now on. I will also be stepping into his shoes as the STC representative for Cardiology. 

Please let me know about any training issues you may have as you all rotate into your new posts over the next few weeks. I would also welcome any ideas people might have regarding improving trainee interaction and experience throughout the region.
