Hospitals Sites for Core Surgical Training Updated for 2014

Please note that we are only able to offer to theme for recruitment 2014. We do intend to have an allocation process once offers have been accepted. However, at this time, we cannot confirm full track details for 2014 and feel it is better to offer to theme rather than to tracks that may subsequently have to be changed.

Please note number of posts per theme are subject to change. We hope to have final numbers by theme available in late January/early February 2014.
