Informal Teaching

Most departments offer in-house teaching. This varies considerably between the different departments but sessions may take place out of hours, in order to maximise attendance. 

Many departments will traditionally use the morning x-ray meeting as a learning opportunity. However, some of the larger units with busy trauma workloads can no longer fully engage in this process due to time restraints. However, provision may have made out of hours and trainees are encouraged to engage with this process. These sessions can be valuable learning opportunities and useful exam preparation.
