A great mixture of internationally recognised hospitals, a carefully structured training programme and a thriving sports, social and arts scene. These are just three reasons why you should develop your paediatrics career in the East Midlands.
The East Midlands is a modern and vibrant region with superb road, air and rail links to the rest of the UK and beyond. Rich in history, it also boasts acres of beautiful countryside and some of the UK's most popular cities.
Nottingham was recently named as one of the Sunday Times 50 best urban areas to live in the UK and is home to both the country's hottest local music scene and to Test match cricket. Leicester is the UK's most multicultural city and just 67 minutes from London by train while Derby is the gateway to the Peak District, the UK's first National Park.
With the average house price around a third of what it is in London - yet the capital is just 90 minutes away by train - the East Midlands is the perfect place to develop your career. Keep reading to find out more about why you should train in the East Midlands.
When you train in paediatrics in the East Midlands you'll benefit from a programme that is structured to your personal development. You'll spend a good proportion of your training time in internationally recognised large centres, geographically close for easy access. And, you'll be based in the heart of the UK, with 90% of the population of England under two hours travel away.
Paediatric training in the East Midlands gives you:
Unlike other regions in the UK, we believe in supporting your development at large centres rather than small, peripheral hospitals. And, because the training region is geographically small you can be sure that your posts won't suddenly involve a lengthy commute. You'll benefit from a small rotation while being able to draw on the strengths of major centres including Nottingham, Derby and Leicester.
As well as broad and comprehensive general paediatric training you can also choose from a range of specialist modules.
For example, you can choose to focus on neurodisability training through rotations at the Nottingham Children's Centre. You can specialise in paediatric cardiac services at Leicester's recently expanded Children's Hospital. Or, you can develop your skills in large paediatric A&E departments in major urban areas.
If you want the best paediatric training while enjoying your life in a modern and family-friendly location, the East Midlands is for you.
