A trainee will be continuously assessed. This assessment is based on a written 2-hour evaluation once in 6 months and the continuous evaluation of the clinical work that the trainee is assigned to do. If he or she does not come up to minimum standard, the faculty may ask him or her to leave at any time during the course of the training programme. He or she will have to maintain a log book which will be the primary mode of assessment during the trainees stay in the department. We expect the candidate to be hard working because of the lengthy and busy periods of duty. Honesty is the quality that the department cherishes. By the end of the training, we expect the candidate to be:
A good clinician who is able to manage and operate on patients with complicated GI surgical problems.
Able to conduct independent research and publish his or her work in good journals.
Capable of setting up an independent department equivalent or better in quality than the parent department.
