Produced by Tiger Aspect, directed by Trevor Docksey and narrated by Richard Armitage, “Surgery School” is a 3-part, series for ITV1. It follows 10 trainee surgeons in the London School of Surgery. Every year only 100 or so students are chosen from the two thousand who apply to the London School of Surgery for training to become consultants. Of those, only 3% could become world class consultant surgeons. The programme begins with the students’ first shift and ends with the final first year assessments and examinations which will determine who goes on to become a member of the Royal College of Surgeons.
The program aired weekly on Mondays, between 10.35 pm and 11.35 pm, from 6th – 20th September, 2010.
