JCST trainee survey report

The 5th annual trainee survey report is now available.

20 May 2021

The 5th annual trainee survey report is now available on JCST website. This covers the training years 2018/19 and 2019/20. Thank you to all trainees in core and specialty programmes who have taken part.

Now, more than ever, we need to hear from trainees. In 2021 we will see:

  • the implementation of new surgical Curricula and Quality Indicators (QIs).
  • significant work to maximise training opportunities in Covid-19 recovery
  • the JCST trainee survey findings included in each SAC’s work to provide annual regional reports for all the surgical specialties.

Trainees are invited to complete the survey via the ISCP at the end of each placement.

A key purpose of the survey is to monitor the achievement of JCST QIs - to enable the quality of training placements within each surgical specialty and at core level to be assessed.
