Our Education


The Director of Medical Education and the wider education team is responsible for ensuring facilities are in place to maximise the training and learning requirements of medical staff.

The centre comprises a 114 seat lecture theatre, as well as 12 seminar rooms and a clinical skills laboratory. Our state-of-the-art simulation centre hosts a range of hands-on medical simulation training sessions. Video conferencing technology is available in some seminar rooms to facilitate multidisciplinary team meetings to other sites. All seminar rooms are equipped with IT equipment, large projection or flat screen displays and audio output. IT technology also allows virtual meetings to take place via Microsoft Teams.

Refreshments are available from our coffee shop and we have indoor and outdoor seating areas for staff to relax or meet with colleagues.

Prayer Centre

The hospital provides a prayer centre, which is located by the main canteen and is open 24 hours a day. The centre has ablution facilities that can be used by Muslim staff. Please select the button for further information about Chaplaincy Service and prayer centre facilities.

One of the main positives of working in the Dudley Group is the autonomy that you have. There is a variety of what you can get involved with.

The Dudley Group junior doctors mess is an organisation run by doctors, for doctors.

There are two messes in the hospital. One is located on the ground floor along the corridor to the right of WHSmith, and the other is situated in South Block opposite the Action Heart gym. 

What facilities are available?

Both messes offer a fridge, microwave, sofas, a TV and computers. They offer a comfortable place to relax and unwind on a busy shift. They can both be accessed 24 hours a day. 

The mess in South Block has a pool table and table tennis. 

What activities are on offer?

Yoga Class: This is every Wednesday in South Block, in the Undergraduate rooms. 

Book Club: Books are provided by the mess, and a social meeting is arranged to discuss chosen books.

The operating theatre setup has a fully functional anaesthetic machine and operating table. The centre utilises Guamard and Laerdal high-fidelity human patient simulator manikins, providing students with exceptional life-like experiences. A fully integrated audio-visual system with full recording capability and state of the art debriefing software, helps to enhance the debriefing experience of our participants.

Dudley Clinical Education


Dudley Clinical Education charity logo
team work icon



The Dudley Clinical Education Centre Charity was first formed in the early 1970s by a group of educationalists from both hospital and community representatives. This group successfully fund raised to enable the construction of the purpose-built ‘Medical Services Centre’ that was sited in the grounds of Corbett Hospital. It operated as the postgraduate education centre until it was relocated to Russells Hall Hospital in September 2003. The current Clinical Education Centre was formally opened on 9th March 2004 by Professor Carol Black, President of the Royal College of Physicians.
