Core Specialty ModulesCore specialty modules
Trainees rotating through different specialties in years 1 and 2 should work to the relevant core specialty modules for their placements, regardless of their surgical specialty of choice. The details of the eleven core specialty modules can be found in the right-hand menu. Each specialty specifies the knowledge and skills that all surgical trainees in such a placement should acquire. These modules align with the quality indicators suggested by the SACs for core training posts in their specialties. Most trainees will wish to complete at least three of these modules (although the curriculum does not specify a particular number to be completed), one of which will be in the same specialty as their ST3 preparation module.
