On the weekend of the 5th and 6th of june Mr Angliss and Mr Brown were examiners in the annual orthopaedic final examination. This is a major test for trainees who wish to become surgeons. The examinations consist of multiple tests including diagnostics, pathology, and surgery, and include written and oral responses to make sure a high standard is maintained for future. Being an examiner is voluntary, and we thank Mr Angliss and Mr Brown for their great contribution to training and examination, particularly in light of the logistical and quarantine requirements in COVID.
