In 2022 the Royal College of Surgeons of England and the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh published the 2022 Curriculum Framework for SCPs. The curriculum establishes the standard required to work as an SCP and provides guidance for SCPs to develop into competent practitioners. The curriculum offers a guide to the education and incremental development of SCPs in both academic and clinical settings.
