Let's Talk Surgery Podcast, Surgical Crossroads: Choosing your specialty - "The Rural Episode"18 October 2021 |
This episode we focus on rural surgery and meet two somewhat unusual surgeons, Gordon McFarlane and Stuart Fergusson – people who do things a bit differently in a very unique setting. Rural surgery is clearly unconventional in terms of career path, and both Gordon and Stuart describe how they essentially carved out their own training programmes. Those already in the specialty have been working hard to raise its profile among general surgeons and at government level. For trainees whose interest has been piqued by today’s episode, our guests' advice is to seek out a broad range of surgical and wider life experience. In particular look into taster weeks and travelling fellowships and explore the opportunities on offer from the Viking Surgeons Association and the Faculty of Remote, Rural & Humanitarian Healthcare at the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh.
