Your evaluation as a participant is an essential course requirement, enabling us to maintain the quality and
helping to direct developments for the Royal College of Surgeons of England’s courses. It also triggers the
issue of certificates (see overleaf for more information on certificates). Please complete your evaluation as
soon as possible whilst your memory is fresh; even if you have failed part of the course (see overleaf).
The online evaluation form consists of three parts:
1) Brief demographic questions;
2) Questions appropriate to all courses, your experience of administrative support, materials etc.
3) Course specific questions, reflecting your opinion on how successfully the course enabled you to
achieve expected learning outcomes.
All feedback is anonymous; names are only used to validate responses
