Wessex Cardiology Trainees

Training Days

Confused about our training?

All Wessex cardiology trainees have access to a number of training events taking place throughout the year.

Official training is split between local days delivered by our cardiology departments within Wessex and the National Training Days at the BCS conference in June and a further event in the Autumn. Attendance at 60% of these events is mandatory.

You should make arrangements to attend in good time, cancelling clinical commitments and informing your educational supervisor. If you are having difficulties attending, please contact either Tom or Kri. All of your consultants support your attendance at these meetings, but it is appreciated that at times, rota commitments and delivery of emergency care will prevent 100% attendance.
