Published: Thursday, 14 December 2017

Surgical trainees can now access high-quality e-learning to support their development thanks to eIntegrity.
gramme covers a broad theoretical knowledge base common to all surgical specialties. It helps early years’ trainees develop the basic knowledge and skills required of a surgeon.

The surgery course has been developed in the UK by the Royal College of Surgeons of England and Health Education England e-Learning for Healthcare. However, the e-learning is relevant to practitioners globally.

The quality-assured content has been written by highly experienced, practising surgeons. It is packed with interactive features, such as videos, audio clips and questions, to help explain the complex surgical principles and build learning and understanding. e Surgery News3
