Welcome to
The Dudley Group NHS Foundation Trust
Postgraduate Education Centre

The Postgraduate Education Centre provides the infrastructure, support and guidance to deliver high-quality education and training to health professionals at The Dudley Group.

The future of our workforce is paramount. We realise the requirement to provide high-quality, relevant and practical medical education opportunities that equip professionals with the skills they need to be successful in their area of expertise, alongside meeting their curriculum needs. 

Students, current staff and prospective future staff can use this website to discover career pathways, training opportunities and valuable insights into life as a healthcare professional at The Dudley Group. 


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.
