The Theatre Faculty Project was a programme of education seminars, personal study and workplace educational activities for surgeons, operating theatre staff and surgical trainees at a hospital in northwest England. Its aim was to create a multidisciplinary faculty with an understanding of implicit aspects of surgical practice, of how these enter clinical thinking and professional judgement and are used to enhance the learning, teaching and assessment of surgeons. A qualitative evaluation of the faculty project showed improved educational understanding and multidisciplinary awareness among its participants. Refinements of the programme were identified to help those (surgeons in particular) having difficulty conceptually or practically with clinical reflective writing and with portfolio building. However, the support of Trust management at the host hospital will be vital in extending the programme beyond its initial group of volunteers and in integrating the multidisciplinary faculty into its organizational structures.
