RCS and St George’s University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust launch surgical education partnership

18 Jan 2018

A partnership launched today will see the Royal College of Surgeons’ (RCS) education courses delivered at St George’s as the College hub for the south of England. 

The partnership has come about as the RCS embarks on a major redevelopment of its headquarters in London, limiting the courses it can provide in its own buildings for the next three years.

The RCS provides educational and practical workshops for surgeons and other medical professionals. Their faculty members will deliver courses using the state of the art facilities in the St George’s Advanced Patient Simulation and Skills Centre. 

The three-year partnership was marked at an event at St George’s today where attendees could tour the centre which includes two full-immersion high-fidelity simulation suites and a fully-equipped skills wet lab and dental simulation suite.

Nick Gosling, Head of the St George’s Simulation and Skills Centre, said: 

“St George’s is honoured that RCS has chosen to partner with us to deliver surgical and dental courses. The college has a reputation for delivering the highest standard of surgical education, and we are excited to be able to use our simulation suite to help healthcare professionals achieve their full potential at every stage of their career.”

Professor Derek Alderson, President of the Royal College of Surgeons, said: 

“We are very excited to be visiting St George’s today to launch this partnership. St George’s excellent facilities will allow us to continue to offer the wide range of cross-specialty and professional development courses that surgeons, and other medical professionals, have come expect from the RCS at the highest possible standards. 

“It will create a hub for the RCS in the South of England while works to our new building take place. It will also complement our new outreach hub for the North and Midlands, launched at the University of Manchester, at the end of last year. This is something we know our members have asked for in the past.”
