Regional Teaching Days

STs are allocated one half day per month to meet for structured teaching, according to curriculum objectives and collective training needs.  This is coordinated by one of the trainees based at Sobell House and is therefore on a rotating basis.  The small and supportive rotation enables this to be tailored to individual training needs eg exam preparation, joint audits, poster presentations.  While trainees are encouraged to take ownership of these training sessions, help and guidance is available from the Training Programme Director.  As part of this session trainees also have the opportunity to participate in group psychological supervision, provided by a medical psychotherapist.

The rotation has good links with other specialties to enable trainees to cover broad curriculum objectives.
