CMT Training Days

Please see the Teaching & Learning front page for important information regarding bookings, attendance etc.

HEKSS School of Medicine delivers seven Core Regional Training Days (RTD) per annum. RTDs are an adjunct to practical experience, serving to clarify and illuminate the links between theory and practice, whilst stimulating further learning. All RTDs cover a different area of the Core curriculum.

It is mandatory to attend a minimum of 60% of the RTDs. Attendance rates feed into the annual ARCP. If a trainee does not comply with the minimum attendance percentage, a satisfactory outcome will not be awarded. You are encouraged to book study leave as soon as you receive notice that the booking site is open. Your Medical Education Management team will need to be informed at least 6 weeks in advance that you will be on a training day.

Please note: Strike days (or any other day which you have sent valid apologies for, as listed on the Teaching & Learning  front page ) will be removed from the figures when calculating your percentage attendance for the year.


These will only be issued at the time of ARCP and will list all events attended in the training year. We do not issue individual certificates.

Regional Training Days

The School of Medicine will be advertising all CMT Training Days via Eventbrite and the booking links will be available on this page. Look out for e-mails from us announcing the opening of registration.

Register your attendance by obtaining a ticket on the Eventbrite site. This will generate a notice to the School of Medicine that you have booked a place.

NB: Only those with a reservation ticket from Eventbrite will be admitted to the training day. This is to avoid unnecessary delays in the signing in process; and to avoid overcrowding in the lecture hall, which would contravene the venue’s Health & Safety regulations.

Registration closes one week before the session date and the link will be removed from the list below. This is to allow for preparation of the attendance registers, and final confirmation of set-up requirements and catering arrangements with the venue.

NB: – Due to capacity and rotational issues, the same programme will be run at two different sites and dates in March, July and November 2016. You only need to attend one of those sessions as exactly the same topics will be covered.
