Training Interface Group (TIG) Committee
Who We Are
The Interface Group in Hand Surgery, Joint Committee of Higher Surgical Training is responsible for supervising advanced training posts (ATPs) in hand surgery (combining input from Trauma and Orthopaedic surgery and from Plastic surgery). We are responsible for setting the standards required for Interface training, and provide oversight for existing ATPs in Hand Surgery and any other posts that have educational approval (additional posts need to be agreed by the SACs in Plastic Surgery and Trauma and Orthopaedic Surgery). We welcome feedback from all trainees in these posts and review surgical logbooks to ensure posts are meeting their educational needs and in order to continually improve the programme.
Next meeting: 16 September 2021
