Re(1): Ophthalmology local training (OLT) prgramme by RCOphth Posted on June 23, 2020 at 18:25:22 by King
I donít think so, itís just showing how the Southampton trust train their CESR applicants, to overcome less international doctors applying for the trust grade jobs and also How to tackle the too high expensive locums.
There is no trust forced to train an international doctor, especially with the tighter budget coming after the COVID expenses.
Anyway how many trusts have the capabilities she is talking about, only university hospitals and these kind of hospitals are flooded by fellows and trainees , the trainees get their surgical numbers by rotating between DGH and teaching hospital, as the latter doesnít give chance for surgery for juniors.
So for the OLT should be an agreement between The trusts to give you the whole curriculum experience for the OST Curriculum for the CESR applicant, which is the deanery job not a Nhs trust business.
You could imagine what the situation be for a CESR applicant.
The future for the next 2-4 years is to tackle the waiting lists for the trusts.
Some say that the old generation consultants may want a quota for the number of people with CESR/ CCT.
Training means money expenditure from the tax payer, may be thatís why there is some advantage to locals ( could be wrong). Replies: There have been no replies.
