General Surgery – Educational opportunities

Teaching Sessions

Teaching sessions include daily consultant emergency on call ward rounds, weekly MDT in upper and lower GI cancer, and a Monday morning radiology meeting.

There is a programme of education sessions that follow on from the radiology meeting. A simulation programme is also being developed using the resources in our well-equipped education centre.

Research is strongly encouraged and supported by specialist research nurses. We routinely participate in collaborative research with trainees regionally and nationally.

Postgraduate Medical Education and Training

St Richard’s Hospital has a long tradition of high quality postgraduate education.

There is an excellent and active Medical Education Centre (CMEC) supported by a comprehensive library with full facilities for on-line computer searching of research literature. A wide variety of courses, tutorials and seminars with local and visiting speakers are organised by the Director of Medical Education, for clinical staff of all disciplines. All grades of medical staff are able to meet at lunch facilities within the centre.

St Richard’s Hospital is recognised for undergraduate teaching by the Universities of London, Southampton and Brighton.  A large number of undergraduate medical students are placed in Chichester each year and are accommodated in the Medical Student Centre within purpose built residential accommodation.
