JCST Trainer Survey

The JCST Trainer Survey was developed by the JCST QA Group and introduced in 2019 to explore topics of particular importance to surgical trainers. The survey follows two pilot surveys, in 2016 and 2017.

All trainers holding a post of Assigned Educational Supervisor, in all UK surgical training programmes, are contacted via email with an invitation to take part. Trainers are identified using information from the ISCP. The survey is open for 10 weeks and should only take about 5 minutes to complete.

We review survey questions every two years and welcome feedback and suggestions for improvement. Further information is available in our Frequently Asked Questions.

If you have any questions or feedback relating to the survey, please contact the JCST Quality Team on qa@jcst.org
