On behalf of the President of the RCSI I am delighted to invite to join the Faculty of Surgical Trainers. 


The recently established Faculty is here to support you in your role as a trainer in the delivery of the Core and Specialty curriculum.


Membership is available to consultant surgeons who practice in a hospital that is recognised for surgical training in the appropriate specialty and who have demonstrated a clear interest by participating in surgical training and education.


The Faculty’s core objective is the pursuit of excellence in surgical training. I hope you agree that there has never been a more important time to recognise the pivotal role played by surgical trainers on a daily basis in our health care system.


The commitment demonstrated by trainers, to both their patients and their trainees by continuing to deliver excellence in both surgical training and clinical care will, I believe, be one of the key legacies of this time.


The Faculty will host a dedicated session at Charter Day on Thursday 4th February.  The session will focus on the key issues facing those involved in the delivery of surgical training.


If you do not wish to be a member of this Faculty please advise by email to


Kind Regards



Ms Bridget Egan
Chair Faculty of Surgical Trainers
