I’ve been hearing good things about a trauma course organised in the West Midlands, so we decided to mosey around and take a bit of a closer look. One of the problems with applying for jobs as a doctor (MTAS, MMC and the like) is that the good old personal statement can be a bit of a nightmare. There are a few courses out there, but we’d recommend picking a course that has formal CPD accreditation (that’s continuing professional development). There’s no reason why a medical student who’s interested in trauma couldn’t enrol on one of these courses, and it would certainly impress and interviewing panel (the course in question is accredited by the Royal College of Surgeons Edinburgh). It won’t be everybody’s cup of tea, but it beats revising on a Saturday, and there is a big practical element. Find out more here about the programme, or click the picture below.
