ST2 Induction

This week it was the turn of the GPST2s to be welcomed back to their new year of training.  A break from their hospital posts, they had a chance to have some discussion about how to succeed through their ST2 year. 

The morning session focussed on the AKT exam and we were pleased to welcome Dr Sally Harkness – an RCGP examiner, who led a very informative session on how the exam is organised, the practicalities and how to prepare for it.  They then got a chance to complete a mock exam which was followed by feedback on the answers and tips on exam technique and avoiding common pitfalls.

A break for lunch gave them all a chance to catch up with each other and the various members of the team.

The day then concluded with a couple of sessions on requirements for the year and the various opportunities available to help maximise their learning – condensed curriculum guides, core workshops and group teaching sessions to name a few.

After a brief Q+A session they went away armed with lots of information and enthusiasm to tackle the year ahead!
