NSTC & HEALTH EDUCATION NORTH EAST SURGICAL SKILLS TRAINING PROGRAMME (SSTP)

Following the success of the NSTC & Health Education North East Surgical Skills Training Programme (SSTP) Pilot in General Surgery and ENT, the programme has now been rolled out to include Urology, Orthopaedics, Plastics, Core Paediatric Surgical Trainees, Cardiothoracics, and now Obstetrics & Gynaecology following a successful pilot in 2015/16.

The overall programme is led by Professor Alan Horgan, NSTC & SSTP Director.  The programme has received excellent feedback from both Trainees and Trainers, and is the first of its kind in the UK, delivering an intensive, individualised, unique surgical training opportunity to Health Education North East Surgical Trainees.  The programme provides fresh frozen cadaveric based skills training and assessment to all General Surgical Trainees.

The programme is a visionary response to the rapidly changing face of surgery prompted by exciting technological advances in surgical technques and skills.
