Doctors in Training

Supporting you to be the best you can be 

We offer you a range of high quality educational and training opportunities that support your immediate and long-term progression whilst aligning to your professional responsibilities as set out in both the GMC's Good Medical Practice and Generic Professional Capabilities Framework which sets out a consistent approach to embed common generic outcomes and content across all postgraduate medical curricula. 

Our aim is to help you build the right skills, knowledge and behaviours you need to positively affect patient care and become the best doctor you can be.  We provide you with opportunities and resources that help you influence day-to-day performance including teamworking, leadership, research, teaching and personal effectiveness.

We provide continuous developmental options in the form of our unique Pyramid of Learning.  It has three main topic areas with optional pathways to help you progress from introductory level to Masters. Our three pyramid faces are:

- Leadership and Management

- Teaching and Training

- Research 

The base of our pyramid is Professionalism.
