POSTGRADUATE EDUCATION CENTRE
The department is responsible for coordinating all postgraduate medical training programmes, including the management of the foundation programme, the Internal Medicine Training (IMT) programme, and various specialty programmes. We also support and host regional teaching days and offer specialist clinical skills and simulation events.
Each specialty has a dedicated educational lead or college tutor who provides support and guidance to trainees. This lead also provides a link into the relevant postgraduate specialty school.
Doctors in training from F1 to ST8 are supported both clinically and administratively by a range of staff within the department. We host local teaching programmes and regularly contribute to regional training programmes in a variety of specialities.
Trainees’ wellbeing is at the forefront of our priorities, offering dedicated support throughout their time at the Dudley Group.
I knew I wanted to work here as everyone was so friendly, it felt like a family straight away from my first interview. The hospital itself just has a great friendly atmosphere so you can thrive here.

Working for the NHS I have been able to discover other sides to my role such as leadership and governance, which is very important for the complete package of being a doctor.
