Welcome to General Surgery Training

General Surgery covers a whole range of subspecialities. All trainees train in Emergency General Surgery but most specialise in either Colorectal, Upper GI, Breast, HPB, Transplant, Endocrine, Trauma or Rural & Remote.

 

We run two large training programmes with multiple opportunities. The East Sector, based in Greater Manchester, Lancashire and South Cumbria; and the West Sector based in Cheshire and Merseyside.

 

From August 2018, the North West will be taking part in the Improving Surgical Training (IST) pilot, a new competence-based, run through surgical training programme in General Surgery. IST posts will be available in both the East and West Sectors from ST1 level.
