SENT ON BEHALF OF MR ROSS FAWDINGTON- Locum Consultant Trauma & Orthopaedic Surgeon



Hi Everyone,


The Major Incident Surgical and Trauma Team (MISTT) course is run locally at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham and Keele University Medical School. The course is 5 days in total. The first 2 days are lecture days and are held at the QE hospital in Birmingham on Saturday and Sunday (10th & 11th November). The cadaveric skills days are held on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday (12th – 14th November) at the Keele Anatomy and Surgical Training Centre. The course is aimed at senior trainees (ST3+) or those that have a firm commitment to trauma care. The cadaveric skills cover the full range of trauma resuscitation from lateral canthotomy, to clam shell thoracotomy and damage control surgery / orthopaedics (please see the MISTT website for further information www.mistt.co.uk). It will be of interest to trainees from the following specialities: Emergency Medicine; Anaesthetics / ITU; General Surgery; T&O and those with a keen interest in major trauma.


Following discussion and support from Mr Tim Graham (Head of the School of Surgery, HEEWM) we are pleased to announce that;

  • 5x HEEWM trainees can attend on a fully funded place (out of the centralised study leave budget) (normal price £995).
  • To be eligible you must be a HEEWM trainee and able to attend the full course (10th – 14th November).
