Due to the upcoming strikes we have had to bring forward the LOST Tribe audit which will now start on Monday 18th January.

 

“The Lost Tribe Audit” aims to categorise who the current “1st on call” cohort is in T&O in the UK, and what they actually do, during a 5-day snapshot (18th – 22nd January 2016). Many of you will be aware that competition for Core Surgical Training and ST3+ T&O Specialist Training is declining to the lowest levels ever recorded. BOTA feels that this is because many juniors are not being exposed to the specialty, and when they are (for example in FY training or CST), they are being used to cover rota gaps and provide ward cover.

 

We know that being inspired to be an Orthopaedic surgeon is largely influenced by a positive and encouraging experience as a junior. Many juniors are not being exposed to the fun aspects of the specialty, such as trauma theatres, elective operations, and management of patients in clinic.
