SAS doctor development workshops and survey

Doctors talking

12 / 1 / 2015 9am


The British Medical Association, Health Education England, the Academy of Medical Royal Colleges and NHS Employers are working in partnership to deliver four regional workshops focussing on specialty and associate specialist (SAS) doctor development and sharing good practice across the country.

They will run from 10am to 3.30pm on:

  • 5 March in Leeds
  • 12 March in Birmingham
  • 17 March in Taunton
  • 23 March in London.

The target audience is:

  • SAS doctors
  • SAS tutors
  • SAS associate deans
  • learning and development leads
  • medical directors and clinical directors.

The workshops will focus on identifying barriers and solutions to effective development, Certificate of Eligibility for Specialist Registration, credentialling, opportunities for SAS doctors in leadership roles and sharing local good practice. They will be filled on a first come, first served basis.


We conducted a survey of SAS doctors to inform the content of the workshops.  The survey is now closed. It focused on current development, career aspirations, barriers and solutions. We are currently analysing the results and will feed them back at the workshop.
