WOSART Regional Teaching

WoSART Stage 3 teaching

WOSART Stage 3 teaching is protected teaching time for all non-page holders.
As such attendance is mandatory.
We do our best to publish the meeting dates as far in advance as possible so that study leave can be applied for prior to any leave books closing. Please remember to apply for study leave locally so that rota co-ordinators are aware of specific dates.
Unless otherwise stated, all meetings generally commence at 2pm.
All Stage 3 trainees should kindly email Dr Peter Paisley to be added to the Microsoft Team with specific details of meetings.

WoS ICM Regional Teaching

WoS ICM Teaching

West of Scotland ICM Teaching is held on a monthly basis (usually the 2nd Wednesday of the month).
At present there is a hybrid programme of both in-person (via Microsoft Teams) and online sessions. Whilst teaching aims to cover topics in the ICM curriculum we welcome all those with an interest in ICM in the West of Scotland.
Two sessions per year are dedicated to the FICM exam with OSCE/Viva Practice.
We hope to run a Journal Club discussing recently published papers in critical care.
