ACCS Faculty Development Day - ​​Wednesday 11 April 2018

Bevan Room, 2-4 Victoria House, Capital Park, Cambridge CB21 5XB


You are warmly invited to join us for an interactive Faculty Development Day for ACCS Educational Supervisors in HEEoE.

Supervising ACCS trainees might be more challenging as there are so many different aspects to consider and, as an Educational Supervisor, you are often the first point of call. The aim of the day is to provide guidance for each stage of training and give direction on how to manage some of the more complex areas of the curriculum.

Topics to be discussed will include:

  • Overview of ACCS training
  • Workbook and paperwork
  • e-portfolios
  • 'What is expected from':
    • EM
    • AM
    • Anaesthesia
    • ICM
  • Simulation courses
  • What/how to prepare for ARCP
  • Trainee in difficulty
  • ACCS Trainee experience

The event is free and places are limited, so early expressions of interest will avoid disappointment.
