About the Surgery programme

eSurgery is a free e-learning resource supporting Early Years’ Surgical Training.

This innovative project will provide a broad theoretical knowledge common to all surgical specialties and help trainees develop the basic knowledge and skills required of a surgeon.

Developed by the Royal College of Surgeons of England in partnership with Health Education England e-Learning for Healthcare, eSurgery will offer interactive e-learning sessions structured in modules that map to ISCP. Each session will take around 20 to 30 minutes to complete to fit in with busy work-study lives. Accessible 24/7, learners will be able to work through any module relevant to their training needs, in any order they choose.
