for Postgraduate Medical
& Dental Education


A career in Surgery begins with Core Training, setting the foundation for a range of subspecialties.

All need require technical skill, intellectual rigour and professional dedication and involve high levels of patient and multi-disciplinary contact.

Training in Wales offers both leading-edge facilities, such as the Wales Institute for Minimal Access Therapy, and research opportunities at Swansea and Cardiff Universities.

Since practices and procedures are constantly developing, surgeons are placed at the forefront of clinical innovation.
