Dermatology

 

 

Training Programme Director - Dr Suzy Leech

Specialty Programme Coordinator - Dave Roxborough

HR Officer - Michael Liddle


Training in Dermatology here provides comprehensive dermatology training in all sub-specialties. We have excellent job prospects with all trainees on both rotations in recent years entering consultant or academic posts at the end of training. Many of these have been within the region and there are also opportunities for post CCT training in Dermatological Surgery and Medical Dermatology.  We have excellent links with Newcastle University resulting in high quality clinical investigation combining with Laboratory Science enabling the trainee to have superb opportunities to participate in clinically orientated research. As such within HEE NE a significant number of trainees undertake higher degrees (MDs and PhDs) as Out of Programme research during their training years.  A number of these have gone on to clinical academic posts and continue high quality academic research in Inflammatory Dermatoses, Skin Cancer, Immunology and Genetics.  Generic training in teaching, research, management and presentational skills are all an intrinsic part of the training programme.
