The East Midlands North Surgical Trainees website is now currently live. This site is a trainees only forum. Posting comments/content requires a username and password, but Read Only access is available to all visitors with the exception of Forum (when it gets going). The Forum will go live when I have sorted out the privacy settings so that discussions remain private between trainees.

This website a very much a work in progress. Suggestions for content will be gratefully received. It is envisaged that this will be an information point for trainees re deanery matters (eg placements, ARCPs) and also a depository of Part 3 FRCS resources.

All current trainees have been issued with a username and password to access the site. Pleae log in as soon as possible to change your password to something memorable. 

Notable items on the website include:

* Current and future placements (accessed from Home page, left Navigation bar under 'Hospitals')

* Part 3 FRCS past questions (accessed from Home page, left Navigation bar under 'FRCS Pt. 3 Questions')

* Current and upcoming teaching sessions (accessed from top menu bar under 'Teaching Schedule')
