Junior Doctors

Training for Junior Doctors

CTEC has developed workshops to assist junior doctors (“JDocs”) develop practical surgical and medical skills.  Recent feedback from this group has indicated that there may be limited opportunities to be exposed to certain surgical procedures and techniques and even less opportunity to repeatedly practise and consolidate new technical skills.  Developing these qualities and skills required for professional advancement is essential for Junior Doctors.  

The content of the CTEC workshops has been based on the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons' JDocs Framework which outlines the competencies relating to surgical and medical skills required for junior doctors to successfully enter a SET Training program.  

The workshops offered by CTEC for Junior Doctors cover introductory and intermediate surgical skills, airway skills, wound management skills and emergency skills. These training workshops will help prepare the pre-vocational doctor when applying for a RACS SET Training place. 

Are you planning to apply for SET? Find more information here about the CTEC Generic Surgical Sciences Training Course and the complementary JDocs: Anatomy series of workshop sessions (suitable for WA based Junior Doctors as it is offered over Six Saturday sessions at CTEC.)

The complete range of workshops and educational events suitable for junior doctors are listed below.
