Teaching

There is a monthly teaching day and all trainees are expected to attend the General Internal Medicine monthly training.

Both training days are held either in Oxford or by rotation throughout the Deanery.

There is academic expertise in Oxford and Reading with links to local Universities. The CLRN Age and Ageing group for Thames Valley is organised in Reading. There is planned expansion in Consultant posts across the Deanery.

There is time available on all timetables to undertake specific special attachments within Health Education Thames Valley. Checklists of expected competencies are available and trainees are encouraged to use local, national and online facilities to fulfil the educational criteria. All hospitals have dedicated geriatric medicine teaching and trainees are expected to undertake audit and research as part of their training
