Post Graduate Programme

All junior medical staff are considered valuable members of a Trust team that is aiming to provide the highest quality of patient care.

We actively support continuous professional development and training to achieve the curriculum requirements of specialty training, including GPVTS, whilst supporting individual learning needs.  Junior Doctors who have worked here are always happy to return, describing us as a friendly, supportive and down to earth Trust where they feel they can learn their trade. 

Many education and training opportunities are available throughout the Trust as well as specialty specific programmes that take place in the Clinical Skills and Simulation Centre. This allows us to utilise the most up to date technology in our high fidelity clinical simulation area. Our well equipped centre houses our SimMan 3G, SimMan, SimMom, SimJunior, SimBaby manikins. We host several postgraduate courses including ATLS, ALS, APLS, MRCPCH, and Obstetrics and Gynaecology.

Simulation training is high on our agenda and we incorporate this in our Human factors training, Simulation Training in Paediatric Emergencies, and our Obstetric Emergencies course to name a few.
