A personal audit of pediatric Surgical Training before implementation of the Calman guidelines.
The purpose of this study was to audit the surgical training experience of a Higher Surgical Trainee in the United Kingdom during the tenure of the posts of Career Registrar, Research Fellow, and Senior Registrar from August 1992 to July 1997.
Although the Report of the Working Party on the UK Specialist Medical Training (the Calman report) was published during this study, the training remained the same because the author elected not to transfer to the new grade.
A 39-field database was designed, and the surgical experience was entered prospectively.
The data were analyzed chronologically according to age of patient, condition, level of supervision, and nature of admission (emergency, elective).
Two thousand two hundred ninety patients or operations are presented.
Only a small number of patients underwent surgery during the research year (1994).
The pattern of operating changed from one of large numbers of supervised to one of more major procedures.
The numbers of neonates and younger infants who underwent surgery increased significantly, and the level of supervision changed allowing more autonomy toward the end of the training period.
This trend was reversed partially during the period of overseas secondment.
The results are compared with those in a recently published USA/Canadian study. (...)
