Postgraduate Medical Education

BTHFT became one of the first Foundation Trusts in April 2004. A year earlier we became a teaching hospital to train the next generation of doctors. During this time the NHS has changed, and the public now expect ever better services. Since 2003, we have built an excellent reputation for the training of new doctors in partnership with the Universities of Leeds and Bradford. We have built new facilities for those students and have plans to further increase these in the coming years. These facilities benefit all clinicians in training both for their first degree and post-graduate education programmes.

You will receive both a general induction and departmental induction here at BTHFT. The general induction will cover generic information important to your role.  The departmental induction will be organised by your designated team and will be much more specific with regards to what your day-to-day duties entail. It is important that you attend both inductions as they are often essential for patient safety and are necessary to progress throughout training.
