What is the surgical career transitions guide?
The Surgical Career Transitions guide highlights the key
opportunities and challenges that occur during the various stages
of a surgeon's career. It consists of a progressively staged
framework from when a surgeon enters their first ten years of
practice as a Younger Fellow, through to the Mid-career stage, and
into the Senior Surgeon phase, highlighting the key issues that may
be experienced during those periods.
By following the link below you will be presented with a
framework across the three stages of a surgical career, grouped
into the four common themes of Surgical Practice, Life Long
Learning, Professional Standards and Personal and Professional
Integration. Each theme highlights a list of issues that are
illustrated by interviewed videos with surgeons who have
experienced them. The surgeons share their experiences and suggest
strategies for addressing them. Each issue is then linked to
relevant education and training opportunities, resources and core
competencies that are available to support you.
