Additional Opportunities within Palliative Medicine
Although this is not compulsory, several trainees complete higher degrees during their time on the palliative medicine rotation.
There are several universities which provide Palliative Medicine Masters degree courses including Cardiff and Bristol. Other trainees have elected to study relevant subjects including health care ethics, law, management and medical education degrees.
Trainees have previously used out of programme experience to perform research or to deliver palliative medicine within a resource poor setting. There are consultants with links in the West Midlands to many areas of the world.
