What we do
We quality control the education and assessment of medical students and doctors in training and facilitate the continuing professional development of career grade staff.
We provide an induction to all new junior doctors in the hospital and ensure they are competent to practise. Regular reviews are held to assess how doctors are progressing, and where problems are identified, structured training programmes and remedial support can be tailored to meet the needs of the individual doctor.
