Rotation Highlights

The UCH/Middlesex rotation is closely affiliated with University College London and is led by Professor Fares Haddad. The rotation is composed of numerous highly reputable hospitals within a small geographical area allowing trainees to commute from a single base during training. Trainees will gain experience in a mix of busy district general hospitals and specialist teaching hospitals where they can pursue advanced subspecialty training and research in centres such as UCH, RNOH and GOSH. Trainees can also gain experience in complex trauma at the Royal London Hospital (level 1 trauma centre). Trainees are well supported, including junior trainees who are further assisted by our peer mentoring scheme, and we boast excellent feedback from past and present trainees. We have a new high quality weekly teaching program along with a monthly journal club to maintain knowledge and appraise research. We also hold a renowned annual research symposium attended by eminent surgeons and past alumni where trainees can showcase their projects. Additionally, our annual mock FRCS VIVA provides trainees with extensive preparation to help pass their exam. On top of all this, the rotation is close knit, friendly and sociable! If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me via the email provided.
