We invite you to join us for a specialty online training and development day for SAS and non-trainee doctors.

This interactive webinar is aimed at SAS/non-trainee doctors principally registered with the KSS deanery (but open nationally) and focuses on the training, development and support needs of participants.

Join us for the chance to hear clinical updates and post-pandemic support needs for doctors, and have your questions answered by experts in their fields.

Learning objectives include:

  • To understand the SAS landscape and training structure/opportunities within KSS/HEE

  • To gain clinical understanding in managing medical emergencies at night as well as managing and supporting long covid patients

  • To understand how to successfully approach the Certificate of Eligibility for Specialist Registration (CESR) process

This webinar is available for on-demand viewing. The webinar recording will be available for registered event participants up to 60 days after the live webinar broadcast via Zoom. The link will be sent 24 hours after the webinar takes place.
