Operative Skills & Expectations Survey The set of questions within the Operative Skills & Expectations Survey are designed to give the training team a better understanding of your experiences and abilities as a trainee surgeon. It is important to note that this is not a “test” and you will not be evaluated on your answers. Completing the survey is entirely optional. We plan to use the responses for research purposes (e.g. publication in peer-reviewed journals) and to structure/inform our teaching. Responses will be fully anonymised and the survey complies with the data protection guidelines and the declaration of Helsinki and has been approved by the School of Psychology Research Ethics Committee, University of Leeds
Pre-Course MCQ There will be a pre-course questionnaire to complete and we will contact you by e-mail once this is open. This will be a timed session and candidates will have 45 minutes to complete the MCQ paper and will not be able to complete part of the paper then return at a later time.
