IM Trainees at Bedford will spend the first 2 years of the program rotating through 6 attractive medical posts. There is excellent exposure to Acute Medicine through the Acute Assessment Unit and on call. Education features highly with a weekly CMT teaching programme focused around ‘the Top 22 presentations’, the weekly physician’s meeting, weekly AAU teaching and the fortnightly hospital grand round. MRCP teaching is available when required. Trainees are expected to attend a Deanery simulation course and Mock PACES course. Trainees will receive training on the expectations of Core Medical training and the eportfolio. A highly motivated group of Educational Supervisors will focus on your ARCP requirements, educational requirements and perform appraisals at least every two months throughout your training. In recent years, MRCP and ARCP outcomes for Bedford Core Medical Trainees have been excellent. Taster days in other specialties will be supported for trainees whose training is progressing satisfactorily, to assist career choices.

Please contact the any member of the Core Medical Training faculty for further information or to arrange a visit.
