Abstract

The purpose of basic surgical training is to provide an educational opportunity to develop the young surgeon in the early years of their professional life. The College's Manual of Basic Surgical Training is the current guide for senior house officers (SHOs) and their trainers. The minimum time a trainee might spend in the SHO grade is two years and if they pass the MRCS/AFRCS they are eligible for higher surgical training. However, on average, most spend up to five years in this grade. Fundamental to the development of the SHO in surgery is the acquisition of operative techniques used in a range of operations.
