General Surgery

The effects of human factor related issues on assessors during the recruitment process for general and vascular surgery in the UK
Healthcare professionals increasingly recognise how human factors (HF) can contribute to medical error.

National organisations hosting such events need to be aware of potential fatigue, boredom and stress that can occur in interviewers during these often repetitive activities.
