3. A Surgical Career Why do you want to become a surgeon?

4. A Surgical Career Why do you want to become a surgeon? Range of operations/ sub-specialities New technology Robotic surgery Neurosurgery Transplant surgery

5. Surgical Training Pathway Medical School Duration: 5 years (6yrs with Intercalation) Exam: MBBS/ MBChB On completion: Provisional registration with GMC

6. Surgical Training Pathway Foundation years Pre-requisite: Provisional registration with GMC Duration: 2 years Exam: None On completion: Full registration with GMC

7. Surgical Training Pathway Speciality training years 1 and 2 Pre-requisites: Full registration with GMC Duration: Normally 2 years Core Surgical training Exam: MRCS and workplace based assessments On completion: Progression to ST3

9. Further Information SurgSoc Careers Evening (February 2009) Royal college of Surgeons website Modernising Medical Careers website

10. At Medical School Show your interest in surgery! Our Events WiST Surgical Careers Evening Royal College of Surgeons visit Anatomy Course Mentor Programme National SurgSoc Competition Research Saving Faces Grants available from RCSE website Intercalation

11. Intercalation What is it? When can I intercalate? What can I intercalate in? Biological Sciences Medicine in Society

12. Degrees Offered Biological Sciences Cell and Molecular Pathology Physiology Cardiovascular Science Neuroscience Pharmacology Biochemistry Clinical Sciences Haematology Immunology Infection Histopathology Clinical Chemistry Cancer Studies

13. Degrees Offered Medicine in Society Health Care Ethics and Law History of Medicine Behavioural Science Occupational Health Public Health and Epidemiology Psychological Medicine

14. Intercalation Neurosciences at King’s College in London Application to King’s Meet deadlines May require interview Permission from the Dean Advantages Teaching ? More research opportunities New environment

15. Intercalation – What did it involve? Modules Systems Neuroscience (1) Molecular and Cellular Neuroscience (1) Quantitative Neuroscience (0.5) Laboratory based project (1.5)

16. Intercalation – What did it involve? Lectures 1st semester Latest research 2 Journals per lecture! Coursework Writing abstracts Posters Statistics using SPSS

17. What did it involve? Dissertation Pick supervisor early! Approach them with ideas / CV Throughout 2nd semester Writing to publication standard Lab / Library Project Exams 3 hours 3 essays Referencing journals Stats exam

18. Intercalation - Pros UNIQUE opportunity – degree in 1 year In-depth knowledge – surgery/ anatomy Insight into research Using Pubmed Writing skills: Ability to read and criticise papers Statistics Publication Points on job application form Break from medicine & meet new people

19. Points on UKFPO (Q1 out of 8 points) 0 = no additional degree 1 = BSc which does not extend duration of MBChB (Nottingham) 2 = 3rd BSc 3 = 2:2 BSc 4 = 2:1 BSc, MSc, BDS 5 = 1st BSc or PhD Other educational achievements 1 = prize (national) 1 = publication (peer reviewed) 1 = Oral or Poster presentation (National or International Conference) *Have to be 1st or 2nd author

20. UKFPO Academic ranking (40 points) 1st – 40 2nd – 38 3rd – 36 4th – 34 Application questions (60 points) – 7 q’s

21. Intercalation - Cons An extra year of study Not easy! Expense Forgetting medicine Going into the year below

22. Relevance Appreciate difference between BSc and MBChB degree Appreciate what lab-based projects involve Experience is just as important as a publication

23. Then What? After Intercalation – apply research skills SSM2 Biological sciences SSM3 Public Health & Epidemiology Project Year 4 Elective/ Poster Year 5 SSA

24. Then What? Audits Presentations & Conference posters Training courses Teaching opportunities

25. National SurgSoc Competition £100 Pre-clinical student prize 500 word abstract on “The Future of Modern Surgery” £100 Clinical student prize 500 word case report on a surgical patient (does not have to be a rare condition) How is it assessed? Clarity Innovation Interest Winners will be selected by our Honorary President (Prof. Alderson) and will be invited to do a 10 minute presentation at the Careers evening/ Sir Harold Ellis Talk and will be awarded their prize How do I apply? Send entries with your name and year of study to Deadline is 31st January 2009

26. Conclusion Intercalation is a great opportunity to develop your career Not a “doss” year & expense factor Pick modules carefully and contact potential supervisors early Meet application deadlines Is Medicine an Art or Science???

27. Conclusion Most importantly HAVE FUN!
