Creating Better Surgeons

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.

 PEGs will offer individuals the opportunity to establish relationships with the specific purpose of providing a safe environment for sharing of challenges and concerns, and will use methodology that is well recognised as a powerful tool in leadership development in business and industry.

Benefits will be improved support, ideas for career development and professional leadership development. RCSEd proposes to set up Professional Excellence Groups through the establishment of groups of 4-6 individuals at similar stages in their career, such as newly appointed consultants and senior trainees.

In order to optimise the benefit from participation in PEGs, interested individuals are required to attend a training day. During this day, we will explore some of the skills required, such as active listening and open, constructive questioning as well as the methodology for running the groups.
