Dan Carradice 2015-2016

All of the BSET training centres offer world-class training opportunities, but each is different in its focus and style. I decided to base my fellowship at St George’s due to its renowned endovascular aortic practice.

My objectives were to focus upon endovascular aortic intervention in terms of: case selection; planning and device selection; equipment familiarity; deployment; periprocedural management; and complex endovascular solutions.

Anne Burdess 2015

I chose to conduct my 6 month BSET Fellowship at Ninewells Hospital, Dundee, under the supervision of Mr. Murray Flett, Consultant Surgeon and Dr. Raj Bhat, Consultant Interventional Radiologist.

As a General Surgical trainee with an interest in Vascular Surgery, I realised that it was only going to be with a dedicated fellowship that I would significantly develop my technical skills.

I spent 6 months at St Thomas’ Hospital during my BSET Fellowship Dec 2013-May 2014. I applied for the fellowship at the ned of my 5th year in SpR training. I then took 12 months ‘out of programme’ to complete this and one other fellowship. I chose to work at St Thomas’ particularly because of the exposure to thoracic work.

Leith Williams2009 – 2010

Leith Williams I spent six months at Manchester Royal Infirmary during my Fellowship in 2009.
