Yorkshire Advanced Training Programme (St6-7).

The Yorkshire Advanced Training programme is the senior element of the School of Obstetrics & Gynaecology Education programme. It consists of advanced training skills modules (ATSM) courses, generic HEE and MIAD e-learning courses and teaching opportunities on our local courses.

From August 2016 there will be a change to how you apply for study leave. Applications will now include how the course relates to your educational requirements. All study leave forms submitted by ST6 and ST7 trainees will need to be pre-authorised by the Director of Education. 


HEE elearning Courses

Health Education England working across Yorkshire and the Humber has developed a range of courses with the aim to provide access to generic skills as well as personal and professional development which supports and enhances good medical practice. Further information on these HEE YH delivered courses can be found on the Generic Skills section. If you have any enquires regarding these courses please use the PGMDE contact for each course and not the YMTP office.

Please note that all these courses have a waiting list for attendance we would therefore advise you to register as early as possible.

Senior Trainees as Trainers

There are a number of opportunities within the YMTP to gain experience as a trainer. Most units hold one or more YMTP teaching weeks/courses which you could be involved with, please contact your College Tutor for further information.

We are currently looking for assistance with the MRCOG Part 3 Revision Course. We need help in running the mock exams at the course. You would be an examiner for either a both day's, one day or a morning/afternoon session. Next dates are October 24th & 25th 2018

We also have spaces on our RCOG Basic Surgical Skills courses for Year 5 trainees. You would assist in the practical sessions of the course as directed by the course organiser. From ST 5 you would be able to be an assessor as stated by the RCOG, therefore you could assess trainees on a specific skill on the course and sign off trainees assessment forms. If you are interested in these two courses please contact the relevant Course Co-ordinator
