This webinar series is designed around the UK and Ireland surgical trainee’s and SAS doctors with an interest in aortic surgery and in preparation for the FRCS Cardiothoracic examination. The event will be free to attendees, and we encourage lecturer’s to make it as interactive as possible, with videos, Q&A’s and audience participation. The session will run for 60 minutes allowing 15 minutes of questions at the end. It will be chaired by the UK-AS executive and we aim to record the sessions and make them available to members. If you have an idea or topic you would like us to consider at future series or you would like to attend, please contact us on admin@uk-as.org
