Advancing paediatric surgery through education and research

The FRCS (Paed) exam

    <h3>Intercollegiate Specialty Board</h3>
    <a href=”http://www.jcie.org.uk/Content/content.aspx”>The Joint Committee on Intercollegiate Examinations</a> (JCIE) is the body responsible to the presidents and through them the councils of the four surgical Royal Colleges of Great Britain and Ireland for the supervision of standards, policies, regulations and professional conduct of the Intercollegiate Specialty Board Examinations.
    <h3>Intercollegiate Surgical Curriculum Programme (ISCP)</h3>
    The <a href=”https://www.iscp.ac.uk/”>ISCP</a> is the nationalised training program for UK trainees in all surgical subspecialties from core training through to CCT (Certificate of Completion of Training). Details of the specific programmes and the individual specialty curricula are available on the ISCP website which is also the portal for the e-portfolio that is mandatory throughout surgical training
    <h3>e-Logbook</h3>
    <a href=”http://www.elogbook.org/”>The e-logbook</a> was originally developed by the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh and is currently the recommended operative logbook for paediatric surgery. Thorough and accurate case logging is central to surgical practice and the e-logbook is used to track trainee’s progress against the indicative <a href=”http://www.jcst.org/quality-assurance/cct-guidelines”>standards for CCT</a> in conjunction with the ISCP e-portfolio.
