'Out of adversity comes opportunity' - Benjamin Franklin
Delivering medical education during the pandemic has been difficult but has led to innovation in the face of adversity for many trainees and trainers. A group of Gastroenterologists from the School of Medicine have been awarded the prestigious Alistair McIntyre prize at the British Society of Gastroenterologists for their work on setting up a weekly webinar series to ensure the continuity of specialty training and also reduce the carbon footprint of training.
Please see the video below on what HEE locally and nationally are doing to improve the trainee experience.
The East Midlands are excited to offer an innovative programme for a select number of IMT1 trainees starting in August 2022. Trainees will be able to undertake the ‘Enhance’ programme in Leadership and Social Medicine alongside Internal Medicine Training, receiving specialist training in areas such as health inequalities and public health. They will then have the unique opportunity to spend time as a hospital doctor in the community, working with local organisations to tackle health inequalities and make tangible changes for the local community.
