Experience outside hospital specialties

An introduction to minor specialties not catered for within the current hospital posts happens in the Day-Release Programme. These include sessions on ENT, Dermatology and Ophthalmology, as well as counselling skills, occupational medicine, physiotherapy and dressings along with and ever-changing series of sessions depending on current curricular needs.

Trainers are also encourages to release trainees to attend outpatient sessions in specialties not covered by them during their hospital rotation. This has been particularly successful in the case of trainees who have not had Obstetrics & Gynaecology posts.
