Stevenage Study Days
The scheme meets at the Lister Education Centre (LEC), Lister Hospital, Stevenage SG1 4AB. It is 5 minutes from Jct 8 off the A1(M) and there is ample parking. The closest railway station is Stevenage and the hospital is well served by local buses and taxis.
The Postgraduate Education Centre office is staffed by our administrator Jacky Billings, senior administrator Mrs April Hall, with our Manager, Mrs Christine Crick being responsible for the overall running of the Centre. The Centre provides excellent, enthusiastic support for Postgraduate Dental and Medical training in Hertfordshire. In addition to Dental Foundation study days, there is an extensive programme of dental lectures throughout the region. Our Dental Postgraduate Tutor is Mr Kevin Jones.
The LEC has pleasant modern facilities including an excellent library, online services and access to an Athens account. The content of the library is constantly being updated and suggestions for the possible purchase of new publications to improve the facilities would welcomed. These requests should be forwarded to your Dental Foundation Advisor.
As newly qualified dentists, you will bring to the scheme a wide variety of clinical experience, new ideas and lots of knowledge. The strength of any scheme is created by the people within it learning together from their experiences, both trainees and trainers. By sharing this, and discussing how your experiences in practice change what you have learned, you will be a rich and valuable resource to your professional colleagues in the group. This year is one of great transition. Leaving university and entering the world of work presents all sorts of personal and professional challenges. The group will provide support, friendship and encouragement to help you all through the year.
We have an exceptional group of trainers offering a broad range and depth of experience, different interests and different perspectives on clinical practice. They will be working with you during the year at joint study days and presenting sessions and workshops during the programme.
