The Broomfield CMT programme is established, well organised and structured.  The medical take is busy but offers a good training opportunity with a wide variety of cases from the routine to the challenging ones. You will be supported on the acute take during the day by an acute physician, a frailty consultant and the physician of the day, which would allow ample opportunities for WBPAs. There is a weekly bleep free consultant led teaching session covering the length and breadth of the IMT curriculum. Additionally there are training sessions on potentially life threatening procedures such as pleural aspiration and cardioversion. Skills lab training on central venous cannulation and intercostal drain are held once year.  There is also a dedicated clinic rota to bag your 40 clinic sessions before the end of your 2 year training. PACES teaching is coordinated and given by  a team of consultants from various specialties. Broomfield has been running regular Mock PACES and PACES course. Traditionally Broomfield trainees have all sailed through their PACES!
