Trainee Comments from previous SSTP ST3 Obs & Gynae Courses:

  • The course exceeded my expectations!  Very well organised.
  • A unique & brilliant learning opportunity - especially with the DaVinci Simulators.  This training has definitely enhanced my view that this Region is a fantastic placement for O & G.
  • All very useful.  I would be more than happy to use the whole of my study leave budget for this excellent value for training.  Course staff were very knowledgeable, enthusiastic and very patient with us!  
  • Cadaver practical was great.   I have been to different laparoscopic (minimal access surgery) courses before this in RCOG and MATTU.  Compared to all of them this is the best training I have received.  Much more practical.
  • This is an excellent opportunity to train with a Consultant in the field with no real time constraints.  A chance 'to have a go' and be allowed to make mistakes which aids learning.
  • Absolutely fantastic, would definitely recommend the course to colleagues!
  • The practical sessions were excellent as I haven't done any surgery (gynae) for 7 months due to research.  Brilliant Trainers, very supportive, taking time to teach us the proper techniques.  I now feel more confident, and this will help me when I get back to clinical work.
  • Excellent course.  Faculty very supportive and created a very positive environment.  Didn't feel silly even when I didn't know certain things.
  • Fantastic opportunity to do the procedures without the pressure of time that is often the problem in real life in the Theatre
  • Excellent course across all 3 days, very valuable
  • Thank you for a very fruitfull and amazing course.  I got so much out of it and it will definitiely help my career.
  • Really useful course for improving confidence before getting 'hands on' with patients.
  • Excellent course, very relevant to our training needs.  Helps improve our confidence.  The ratio of Trainer to Trainee was excellent for the practical sessions.
  • Really excited to see how my surgical skills have improved, looking forward to putting these skills into practice.
  • Excellent course - very well ran.  Very relevant to our year of training.  Very useful to practice / learn laparoscopic skills.
  • Vey well organised.  Enjoyable and challenging.  I feel more confident in my skills.  Good to practice in safe environment.
  • Excellent cadaveric session.  This was somehing I would not be able to have any experience with on a living patient at this stage of my training.
  • The course was well above expectations, and I have already recommended this course to colleagues
