The RGUC Digital Media Team are an in-house team of dedicated and hard working media professionals, responsible for developing content to enhance the learning experiences of our medical students, foundation year doctors, and other clinical professionals across the Trust.
The team has a broad skill set, knowledge and experience of a variety of different software packages and programming languages and enjoy creating a range of digital educational media resources to inform and educate healthcare professionals of the future.
There is support available for most medical education project requests. However, given that the primary remit centres on medical education, it is not possible to offer support to projects that fall outside of this scope unless there is a budget available to fund out-of-hours overtime. Please contact the team via email to request further information.
