Who are we & what are we doing

At Clinical Skills Managed Education Network (CSMEN) we are developing a simulation-based educational development programme for medical training programmes across Scotland. 


  • An improved balance between service delivery and training.
  • An improved relationship with professionalised trainers.
  • Integrated use of simulation as an adjunct to clinical apprenticeship.

We currently have 3 programmes up and running:

  • IMT - Internal Medicine Training
  • CST - Core Surgical Training
  • HST General Surgery - Higher Surgical Training in General Surgery

The Improving Surgical Training (IST) Pilot is fully incorporated into the Core Surgical Training programme.
