Postgraduate Medical & Dental Education (PGMDE)

Postgraduate Medical & Dental Education (PGMDE)

We deliver and manage educational activities for all trainee doctors and provide support to their educational supervisors, consultants, SAS doctors and GPs.

The PGMDE Manager and administrative team work together with the Education Faculty to organise and monitor:

  • Curriculum based teaching programmes
  • Junior Doctor Induction Courses
  • Preparation for Professional Practice programme
  • Study leave 
  • Career guidance, advice and counselling for doctors in training
  • Facilitation of e-portfolio
  • Education and Clinical supervision process

The Health Education East of England’s (HEEoE) Local Education and Training Board (LETB) agrees a contract with the Trust to provide education, training and supervision to ‘doctors in training’ to an agreed standard.

The HEEoE Director of Education & Quality Postgraduate Dean’s representative at the Trust is the Director of PGMDE, who has overall responsibility for developing medical and dental education within the Trust.

We are committed to meeting the required standards of regional and national medical education bodies and undertake this with the support of a trained Education Faculty. We make every effort to ensure that trainees progress to their next level of training.
