2021 Courses

SCTS Education is running the virtual ST7A Revision and viva course for the FRCS (C-Th) to be held from Monday 1st – Thursday 4th March 2021. SCTS Education have made the decision to hold the course virtually instead of in person, due to the current government restrictions that are in place across England and Northern Ireland.

This is the first year that SCTS Education will be inviting Trust Appointed Doctors to apply and join us for the course. Please note, this course is only aimed at those who are scheduled to take the FRCS (C-Th) exam in the next 6 – 12 months. Please find the provisional programme and the application here.

To apply, please return the completed application form, with the support of the clinical or educational supervisor in your department. The closing date for applications is Friday 12th February 2021.

There will be a scoring process and due to a limited number of places available, successful applicants will be notified shortly after the closing date. If you are unsuccessful this time round, there will be a second virtual course planned for the second half of the year and dates will be advertised shortly.

Although the course is free, you will be required to join SCTS as a member and pay a refundable deposit of £50 to SCTS Education to secure your place. Your deposit will be returned on attending the full two days of the course and completing the feedback form. You will also receive a certificate for your portfolio.
