Career groups for surgeons

CAREER guidance groups are being set up to help surgeons share ideas and discuss problems.

The Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh is establishing professional excellence groups (PEGs) “to help and support high achieving surgeons at different stages in their careers.”

Groups of four to six surgeons at similar stages in their career, such as newly appointed consultants and senior trainees, will be brought together to offer each other support and advice.

The College said the PEGs will offer a “safe environment” for doctors to discuss challenges and concerns and will use “methodology that is well recognised as a powerful tool in leadership development in business and industry”.

Those interested in taking part will be asked to attend a training day to discuss the skills required and how the groups will be run.
