CORE TRAINING DAYS 2022

Organiser : Narman Puvanachandra (Head of School and Associate Dean) & Brinda Muthusamy (Training Program Director)

We run monthly CORE teaching days that all trainees attend across the region. They are split between Norfolk & Norwich University Hospital (NNUH) and Addenbrookes Hospital, Cambridge (ADD)

The basic format is typically interactive talks in the morning and then OSCE based stations in the afternoon to hone clinical examination skills in small groups.
