How can my Career be further developed?
There are ample opportunities to take time out of programme to undertake a period of research or gain experience in a slightly different field, for example in medical education or management.
Within the Deanery there are opportunities in clinical trials, laboratory based research, advanced endoscopy as well as the aforementioned opportunities in medical education and management.
Out of Programme
Trainees are well supported in selecting an appropriate period of out of programme experience for them and it is accepted that the experience gained are useful and provide help to enable individuals to gain experience outside that of the normal curriculum.
There is plenty of opportunity to present research findings at regional meetings (Midlands Gastroenterological Society, which takes place twice, yearly) Nationally (British Society of Gastroenterology) and internationally (Digestive Diseases Week, United European Gastroenterology Week).
