Welcome to all O&G trainees in Wales
Dear midwives & trainees,
thanks for making our 2nd gynae anatomy study day such a success.
The next months will offer a variety of study days - make sure that you can attend as many as possible (remember the 60% attendance for your ARCPs).
On this note, for summer this year, TWOGS is planning a joint obstetric/midwifery study day out in the open again. This will be followed by a party a day or so later.
Further details will follow in the near future.
PS. Good luck for all of you taking part I or II in March.
Please not a few addendums for our anatomy study day on the 22.2.2013.
Could you indicate your interest in attending a course dinner at 6pm in Red Hot in St. David’s in Cardiff? Please tell us whether you are coming / may be coming / won’t be coming for sure! Please write to firstname.lastname@example.org.
On the day you will need a sketchpad and a pen as we will have an artist attending our sessions who will teach medical drawing. Unfortunately, our trainee budget does not allow buying one for everybody. As a guide, she suggested the following material (but do feel free to bring what you have):
Gerstaecker Spiral Sketch Book - A4 - Portrait
Pitt Artists's pens are good drawing pens and avoid charcoal dust or pencil shavings!
Last but not least and actually the MOST IMPORTANT:
In order to make this day more successful and more directed towards your learning needs, Mr. Lim has asked for everyone to email us YOUR TOP 3 EXPECTATIONS from this course.
Please again, write to email@example.com.
That’s it for now.
I'm happy to announce that we are fortunate to be able to organise our 2nd Cardiff Gynae Anatomy Course on 22.2.2013. Please apply for study leave asap in your own departments and book a place in our course by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
This year, spaces will be limited to 30 dissectors only and they will be distributed on a first-come, first-served basis and the price per person will be 50£. This shall include coffee/tea and lunch. I hope you are all looking forward to getting back to the dissection room! The deadline for applying AND paying is the 1.2.2013.
IMPORTANT If your name is on our list but you have not paid by 1.2.2013 then your place will be offered to someone else.
PLEASE NOTE It is an early start. 0830 Registration. 0845 WE WILL START THE DAY. This is in order to maximise the time dissecting. DO NOT BE LATE PLEASE. Allow plenty of time to park your car!

There are a number of public car parks within easy walking distance of the University - those in Dumfries Place (accessed via St Andrew's Place) and North Road may be the most convenient. Additionally, an on-street pay and display parking system operates in some streets surrounding the University campus. This typically costs around £3.50 for five hours. Payment is by coin or debit/credit card. Parking in the North Road car park is £5.00 per day (charges for city centre multi-storey car parks vary considerably, up to £12 per day).

With the new year being well underway now, it is time to start thinking ahead to the rest of this year's rotation. This involves in particular the planning of our next TWOGS study days. Should YOU have an idea of what topic you would like to be organised, do not hesitate to contact us.
As several committee members have left TWOGS, we invite everyone with an interest to become involved in trainee matters to come forward and apply for a position on our TWOGS committee. Ideally, every hospital should have a trainee representative.
Please email us on firstname.lastname@example.org with details of your training, your current post and why you would like to be part of the TWOGS committee.
The TWOGS team.
