Advancing paediatric surgery through education and research

Return to Work and Support

TRiPS logo

Make no mistake, paediatric surgery training is a challenge. It is a long process and can be complicated by numerous issues, especially in the NHS and within a training scheme that changes rapidly.

So, it is good to be armed with the information need to navigate it as best as possible. We have tried to put together some link to resources that you may find yourself needing over the years.

If there is anything missing that you think important please let us know.
