Monthly Regional SPR Teaching

Updated 2 March 2020

Regional SpR Teaching Programme

SpR doctors from the region are expected to attend as many SpR teachings as they can (unless instructed otherwise).

The teaching will follow a two-and-a-half-year rolling programme, so as to cover the curriculum twice over five years.

Teaching is a full day unless otherwise advertised and is held every month except in January, July and August, when there will be no teaching session. In addition, the teaching in June will be the Regional RCP Day.

Teaching is held on Level 3 of the John Radcliffe Hospital, usually in the George Pickering Education Centre.
