The Cost of Surgical Training Survey (CoST)
This survey aims to investigate the additional costs incurred by surgeons in training in pursuit of their career goals. It includes questions on financial and non-financial costs related to training. A similar survey was conducted by ASiT in 2007 and 2017 and we aim to compare changes over time.
The results will be freely shared, including in publications and on the Association's social media platforms. It will also be disseminated to political leaders, the four surgical Royal Colleges, JCST and Specialty Associations.
Completion indicates your consent for analysis, distribution and publication of anonymised, grouped results. Individual responses are anonymous.
This survey is for all trainees, staff grades, foundation doctors and fellows regardless of surgical specialty, working in the United Kingdom and the Republic of Ireland. Students are not included.
It takes approximately 30 minutes to complete.
As a sign of gratitude for completing the survey, we are offering 2x £25 Amazon vouchers.
