Overview

This course aims to provide participants with a strategy for reading and critiquing surgical journal papers, with a step-by-step guide to analysing their methodology, statistics and findings.

Participants will be sent a number of recently published journal papers (e.g. BJS, Annals of Surgical Oncology, World Journal of Surgery) immediately prior to the course to read in preparation. The emphasis of the course is on general surgery, although the generic approach to reading and critiquing papers is equally applicable to trainees in all surgical specialties.

This course particularly offers preparation to those who will be taking the FRCS academic viva in general surgery. There is also an opportunity for core trainees who plan to attend ST3 interviews and also foundation trainees and medical students interested in surgical research to observe the course rather than participate.

The course will be run by knowledgeable and friendly course tutors and is interactive, with ample opportunity to ask questions and gain a clear understanding of the topics covered.

16 participants will be asked to present a paper each and will be actively involved, and asked questions. Observers will be able to interact via the chat session.
