To be a thriving provider of Postgraduate Medical and Dental Education, recognised locally and nationally for innovation, research and the provision of optimal learning environments, for the benefit of trainees, trainers, and ultimately the patients whom we serve.

 Mr. Jonathan Allsop, Director of Postgraduate Medical Education

The aim of the Postgraduate Medical Education Administrative Team is to support

Some of the key services provided by the team are:

To act as a source of advice, guidance and pastoral support for all doctors in training.

To ensure there is a core curriculum for each specialty and that educational objectives

are set in place for each training post.

To develop and update teaching programmes for trainee doctors and to ensure

attendance at mandatory teaching is sustained.

To monitor the Health Education England East Midlands HEE(EM) study leave policy

for trainee medical staff.

To facilitate and encourage the training of consultants in teaching and supervisory roles.

To work closely with the clinical directorate staff to ensure that both corporate and

that all new starters are released to attend.
