Trainees’ Bulletin

The Trainees’ Bulletin is a special edition of the Bulletin, with content curated and written by trainees, for trainees. We want to support trainees at this important stage in their career, by providing a platform for discussion and debate, raising awareness of key issues and helping facilitate change. RCS England is with you throughout your career. 

Our Trainees’ Bulletin Editor Alexander Zargaran (@alexzargaran) writes about navigating our uncertain times in his inaugural editorial, and ASiT President Srinivas Cheruvu (@ASiTofficial) talks about the changing landscape in healthcare and surgical training.
