Program Description

If you're currently a trainee surgical care practitioner, working as part of a surgical team in a hospital and would like to develop your knowledge and skills, our part-time course accredited by the Royal College of Surgeons of England is for you.

The role of surgical care practitioner (or SCP) is a relatively new one, driven by the needs of hospitals and healthcare providers. SCPs manage the clinical care of patients but also assist with technical and operative interventions - overlapping with some of the care that's traditionally offered by doctors.

Additional costs:
• Basic Surgical Skills Course: £650
• ISCP registration: £250 (Year 1 only)
