Our Trust offers a regular series of workshops, induction programmes, and other events relevant to SAS doctors (details of which will be posted here when applicable). A list of external courses can be found on the HEKSS site.
SAS Training Grant Fund
Before you apply you must take into consideration that this funding MUST be accessed, attended and all expenses claimed for by March 31st 2021. As from this year, there are absolutely no extensions to this period and rule, despite when the funding may become available, if this funding is not spent, the money will be returned to HEE, this is unfortunately outside of our control. Please be aware that following the approval process, the money may not be available until October/November 2020.
Please therefore identify courses that can be attended within this timeframe, ensure that you complete all the sections within the funding form and obtain the necessary signatures as soon as possible. Please remember, HEKSS does not approve overseas courses.
When completed please return the form to Catherine Kidd.
SAS Doctors ES Supervisor Project
In view of the establishment of the local medical school in Kent (KMMS: Kent & Medway Medical School), the Trust is keen to be a key participant in the delivery of the undergraduate medical education and training for the students commencing in September 2022/3.
The Trust SAS Faculty is planning to launch a pilot clinical teaching and educational supervisor programme for a dozen of our SAS Doctors as a pilot cohort, and if successful, there will be further opportunities made available for other aspiring SAS doctors.
This programme requires a commitment of 3 full days of skill based workshops for effective clinical teaching followed by 2 further days for educational supervision which will take place at the RCP, London. This Programme is fully funded by the Trust. On successful completion of the full programme you will be assigned students from KCL initially, and then from KMMS. The full 5 days will need to be taken from your study leave entitlement.
If you have any queries, please contact Catherine Kidd.
