SAS Doctors and CESR Development
LSCFT is very proud of the work that we have done to develop our SAS Doctors and to support many of these doctors through the CESR process. We truly value our SAS doctors.
We have an excellent CESR Development Group, led by medical education, which meets every 2 months to drive forward the educational developments for this group of Doctors. We have introduced formal training for supervisors/mentors who have MTI doctors, and SAS doctors who wishes to progress with CESR . We ensure allocation of SAS doctors to CESR mentors when they wish to start their CESR. There are thriving SAS development days which have both academic and pastoral elements, with senior educators, medical leaderts and medical staffing involved in these development days. We also run an annual SAS and CESR conference. We have also introduced specific peer support forums for SAS doctors, including a whatsapp community.
LSCFT have also developed unique CESR Achievement Posts (CAP) in Old Age Psychiatry. These posts have specific elements which include 2x SPA's per week to work on the portfolio of evidence, enhanced portfolio development support in addition to the allocation of a CESR Mentor & Clinical Supervision.
