Prestigious Exam Held At The Hospital
We recently hosted the annual three day Fellowship of the Royal College of Surgeons (FRCS) Trauma and Orthopaedic Revision Course.
This prestigious course is led by Mr Khalid Baloch, Orthopaedic surgeon, clinical tutor and director of the Birmingham Orthopaedic Teaching Programme (BOTP), and is organised by the Trusts Medical Education Team.
This course is a highly recognised programme with registrars and fellows from across the country requesting to attend, in preparation for their final FRCS exams. Hosting it is a real honour!
The course is supported by a faculty of over 60 orthopaedic consultants and tutors from across the region, who offer their time to support the development and success of our registrars who are the consultants of the future. They also gain recognition and skills development whilst being able to share knowledge and develop best practice during the event.
100% of the BOTP registrars (Birmingham Orthopaedic Teaching Programme) who attended the FRCS revision course in January 2016 went on to successfully pass their Final FRCS exams in February 2016.
