The Royal College of Physicians (RCP) Acute Care Toolkit recommends that procedural training should be available for Medical Registrars at all hospitals with simulation training widely regarded as a key way of teaching such skills. Simulation training is now mandated for Foundation and IMT Stage 1 trainees nationally and is well delivered within our Deanery. There has been no such facility for General Internal Medicine (GIM) Registrars and a pilot ran in 2018/2019 determined the interest, need, and means of delivering such a programme alongside OxSTaR. During the pilot 32 trainees ranging from ST3-ST7 took part. Excellent feedback was obtained with all trainees commenting ‘the sessions were well organised, relevant to clinical practice and improved procedural skills.’ All trainees rated the training as "excellent" and a "great initiative" with 97% recommending incorporation into the HST curriculum. Confidence was improved by VAS scoring post training for all procedures and almost 90% felt the sessions would improve safety on GIM on calls.
The fully funded, 'Medical' SpR Simulation training programme is being run in conjunction with OxSTaR on Monday 18th July 2022
This programme will be repeated on a 4-6 monthly basis if you cannot make the first one due to leave/clinical commitments. Bookings are being taken by OxSTaR on a first-come-first serve basis.
See table below for station start time- Each station is 45 minutes, so there will be 4 trainees per group who will rotate through
Please select one colour group on the next page. Each group will cover the stations above in a different order.
There are also optional Lumbar puncture simulation training sessions available in the afternoon - these slots need to be booked in advance 3 per time slot.
Return To Training programme
The RTT programme has been developed jointly by HETV, educators, and trainees across the region to meet the needs of any doctor who has been away on a career break. The programme is modular, and designed so that you can choose the modules most relevant to you. The modules are free of charge and will be provided in a friendly supportive environment with absolutely no assessment and the chance to address your specific questions/worries throughout the day. Please note some modules may be virtual due to COVID. The modules will run from 09:00-17:00 unless numbers are low, you will be informed by the Lead faculty if this is the case.
We hope that you will find the sessions refresh clinical skills and knowledge, and give you chance to boost confidence before returning to work.
Please contact [email protected] to register your interest and gain access to the passcode needed to book onto the modules. Please have your GMC number to hand.
