Medical education

The Medical Education Team at University Hospitals Bristol NHS Foundation Trust comprises both the Undergraduate and Postgraduate teams.

The South Bristol Academy team are responsible for Undergraduate Medical Students who are on placement with the Trust from the University of Bristol. The students range from Years 1-5 of Medical School, along with students from other Universities (both UK and overseas) who are on their Medical Elective placements in the summer.

The team manage many of the units of the medical curriculum within the Academy which includes timetabling tutorials, seminars, teaching sessions, booking students into clinics and providing pastoral support as required.

We employ 4 Clinical Teaching Fellows, who deliver a large proportion of our teaching, and work closely with the Academy Dean and Deputy Dean along with Consultant and Junior Doctor colleagues across the Trust.

The Academy has its own teaching facilities within Dolphin House in the King Edward Building, along with the Education and Research Centre.

The Postgraduate Medical Education (PGME) service is available for all doctors and dentists within University Hospitals Bristol. PGME is responsible for the governance and quality of medical and dental training within the Trust. The team consists of Consultants, administration staff, SAS doctors and Education Fellows based in the Education and Research Centre.

As part of a wider network of senior educational leads we ensure you will have a rewarding and successful time at University Hospitals Bristol.

We are on hand at Corporate Induction to ensure you have everything you need for your first day and you will hear from us often as we regularly send out training and information bulletins. You are invited to attend any of our Grand Round meetings which take place weekly and we also run various teaching sessions for Foundation doctors, SAS, Core Medical Training and Paediatrics.

We have a great career and support team who are available for confidential 1-2-1 advice and bespoke support return to training programmes.
