Paediatric trainees in the West Midlands are very lucky to have protected regional teaching throughout the training programme:
ST1-5 teaching occurs on a monthly basis (held on different days of the month; see below)
ST6-8 teaching occurs approximately four times per year.
This teaching is consistently evaluated highly and is always improving - trainees are involved in the design and format of teaching throughout ST1-8 and the Consultants leading the individual teaching days are constantly making improvements based on the last year's feedback.
Date of Teaching depending on Training level:
ST1 Paediatrics: 4th Wednesday of the month
ST1 Neonates: 2nd Wednesday of the month
ST2: 1st Wednesday of the month (except March and September due to change over)
ST3: 1st Wednesday of the month (except March and September due to change over)
ST4 & 5: 3rd Wednesday of the month (combined teaching)
ST6-8: 5th Wednesday of the month (combined teaching)
ST4-8: Combined teaching twice a year - 3rd Wednesday of each March and September
