International Partnerships


Trainees may get the opportunity to volunteer abroad as part of a global health partnership. Cambridge Global Health Partnerships (CGHP) coordinates a number of ongoing partnerships with hospitals and teams in low- and middle-income countries. Teams across the hospital trust are involved and they are always on the lookout for volunteers and opportunities for new partnerships. 

Infection page: Education

There is a strong educational culture within the infection specialties in East of England and the department has very high success rates for specialty examinations.  There is formal teaching every lunchtime (1-2pm) covering all the infection specialties as well as six regional training days annually.  There are many more educational experiences including specialist MDTs and conferences or specialist attachments to infection control, antimicrobial stewardship team or critical care that mean there is ample opportunity to learn.
