Teaching Opportunities within Palliative Medicine
There is plentiful opportunity for teaching within palliative medicine.
Most consultants feel that this is an integral part of our role. Registrars become involved in teaching many different people from health care assistants to Masters level students.
Trainees have the opportunity to be involved in management tasks in many posts. There is also the opportunity to attend meetings including the Specialty Training Committee, and organise events including the West Midlands Palliative Care Physicians meeting.
