There are 2 rotations in Health Education England North East (HEE NE), the Northern and the Southern Rotation.
The Northern Rotation involves rotation between the Royal Victoria Infirmary, Newcastle upon Tyne and the University Hospital of North Durham. For around 8-12 months of the 4 year programme, 3 days per week are spent at the University Hospital of North Durham. The programme offers excellent and comprehensive clinical experience and training in Dermatology and all its sub-specialties with strong links with University Department of Dermatology, which has a strong and active research programme.
The Southern Rotation includes clinical placements divided equally at The James Cook University Hospital, Middlesbrough and University Hospital of North Durham. After the first 18 months of clinical training, the rotation offers the unique opportunity to rotate to the Academic Department of Dermatology at Newcastle University for 1 year to pursue research, or, within that year to develop an area of clinical expertise within HEE NE depending on the requirements of the trainee. Training will be completed by a further 18 months of clinical training in the other clinical centre.
