Placements

Post Placements within Palliative Medicine
Posts vary in their requirements, but all will have some training and some service needs. 

The well designed West Midlands rotation ensures that trainees have a broad range of experience. This includes experience in hospice inpatient units and day hospice, community settings including domiciliary visits and community hospitals, DGH hospitals and tertiary referral cancer centres and outpatient clinics. 

Placements can also be arranged with rehabilitation, chronic pain, general practice and other services.
