Training Programme Directors Forum (TPDF)
The BOA’s work is supported by the TPDF, and the Training Programme Director has a key role in managing the specialist training programme of the specialty. The fundamental role is that of co-ordinator and communicator between Specialist Registrars, the Postgraduate Dean, the local Specialty Training Committee, and trainers.
The full list of Training Progamme Directors for T&O can be found on the JCST website here. Full details about the Training Programme Directors can be found in the Manual for Higher Surgical Training (The Pink Book).
