ENT: A multidisciplinary approach to...

A webinar series for ENT trainees, SAS and consultants brought to you by The Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh in association with ENT UK. The premise behind this series is to provide clinicians with an understanding of their roles and that of other disciplines in the treatment of common ENT diseases. Each session will feature two speakers i.e. an ENT Surgeon and a colleague from an affiliated medical/surgical specialty. The hope is that by utilizing a cohesive approach, we will limit adverse events, improve patient outcomes, decrease patient length of stay, reduce costs and increase both patient and job satisfaction.

Vascular Surgery

A webinar series brought to you by the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh in partnership with The Vascular Society of Great Britain and Ireland.

The series will begin by addressing what the specialty involves and how it has developed to specifically engage those who are in medical schools or are in their early years of post-graduate training who often have little exposure to our specialty. The remainder of the series will seek to ask experienced vascular surgeons to address areas of vascular surgery that are clinically challenging and provide dilemmas in decision making.

We hope this series will appeal to a wide range of vascular specialty trainees and consultants.
