Core Surgical Training (2017)

Professional/Leadership Skills


Professional Behaviour & Leadership Skills Module Professional behaviour and leadership skills are integral to the core syllabus relating to clinical practice. It is not possible to achieve the competencies within the core curriculum unless these skills and behaviours are evident. Professional behaviour and leadership skills are evidenced through clinical practice. By the end of core training, the trainee must be able to demonstrate progress in acquiring these skills and demonstrating these behaviours across a range of situations as detailed in the syllabus.

Under each category heading there are learning objectives in the domains of knowledge, skills and behaviour together with example behaviours. These objectives underpin the activities that are found in the core surgical syllabus. At all times trainees should demonstrate their compliance with the requirements of Good Medical Practice (GMC 2013).
