Aims of the project
Aims of the Project

  • To get sign up to a series of events and activities designed to aid in the development of Good Practice in selection of people to train in surgery

  • To form a Faculty of Selectors who will provide ideas and leadership for the surgical community

  • To do so from the outset in partnership with Trainers and trainees

Some ground rules
Some Ground Rules

  • We intend to illustrate Good Practice, not enforce best Practice or uniformity where unnecessary

  • We need to represent the whole of surgery to include Run through, Core and Themed concepts of training

  • We must accommodate the whole of the UK and not just one model

General summary
General summary

  • Something like a seven station model – 3 interviews and 4 other selection centre stations

  • Scope for centre and speciality variation within the model

  • We wish to collect and analyse activity

  • Provide advice and training

  • End up with specific deliverables

Additional work on shortlisting tools
Additional work on shortlisting tools

  • Shortlisting is a process of reducing the number of applicants to manageable numbers

  • This is a competitive and therefore normative process

  • It must be fair and transparent

  • It must recognise those who deserve the best opportunity as selection progresses

  • It should pick out the best from the rest…

Shortlisting fears
Shortlisting fears

  • We do not have control over whom is short listed

  • We might miss very good candidates

  • We could be lumbered with people we do not want and then we can’t get rid of them…

Work so far
Work so far

  • We have been piloting a machine marked test which explores attitudes and judgement

  • We assume at ST3 all have the requisite knowledge tested by MRCS and ARCPs

  • The aim is to shortlist a largish group who can then be short listed in greater detail by experts


  • JCST will act as the conduit and will communicate with DoH who are funding us

  • We expect to share anonymous data

  • JCST will publish collectively on behalf of the partners

  • Individuals will not have reasonable access to data denied to them but JCST should be contacted so we all share
