Postgraduate Medical Education

Post-graduate Medical Education

The department of Postgraduate Medical Education is committed to supporting the education and development of Doctors in Training, Staff Grade and Associate Specialists (SAS) as well as Consultants throughout their career. We are part of Health Education South West - Severn and work closely with them to deliver important healthcare priorities and assist them in monitoring our progress.

We strive to ensure all doctors in Gloucestershire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust have a high quality induction to the Trust and department, experience good educational and clinical supervision which facilitates their learning in a safe environment.

We support and organise a wide range of clinical and educational skill development courses from Training the Trainers and Professional and Generic Skills to Simulation Training, Medical Grand Rounds and much more besides.

The departmental culture is open, friendly and supportive of all doctors and we are happy to address any queries regarding education and training.
