What makes us different?
People who do their specialty training in the Northern Deanery get much more than just high quality training. In addition to our first class exam preparation, excellent clinical and academic supervision and the breadth of experience provided, we offer excellent personal support.
We’ve tailored our training here to help you achieve a good work/life balance in our fantastic region which boasts a unique geography. How many other training programmes enable you to finish a shift and catch a wave, hit the shops (and afford it – our cost of living is the lowest in the country) or go seal watching in the evening...and still pass your professional examinations?
A great educational experience
The quality of education and training we can offer you is our most important attribute as a deanery and our investment in our trainers and their training is essential to our success. We’ve been training our educational supervisors for more than ten years and last year 1300 consultants and registrars attended our training programme.
In collaboration with colleagues from Newcastle and Durham Universities, this year also sees the launch of the Northern Faculty of Medical Education (the people who contribute to undergraduate and postgraduate medical education) to ensure the best teaching and training possible for you.
