Welcome to Internal Medicine Training (IMT) in Yorkshire and the Humber!
We think Yorkshire and the Humber is a fantastic place to start your medical training due to its fantastic mix of world leading hospitals, forward thinking training programme with years of experience of incorporating simulation, highly developed trainee engagement programme and the wonderful opportunities outside of work in both our major cities and beautiful countryside with the east coast on one side and pennines on the other! We strongly support less than full time training in the region and have a nationally leading approach towards this (under "How Your School Works" above). Our significant investment over the last few years in PACES preparation has meant we're the only region in England to have a continuous year on year improvement in our MRCP (UK) pass rate by the end of IMT2 since data collection started in 2013/14 (MRCPUK Data, November 2017)!
Yorkshire and the Humber is divided into three regions (North and East, South and West) and trainees are appointed to one region. To give as broad an experience as possible trainees generally spend one year in a teaching hospital and another in a nearby district general hospital.
We provide both local and regional teaching with around sixty regional teaching days run every year. We fully fund both our acute simulated core medical emergencies (ASCME) simulation course and advanced procedural skills lab training as well as a full weekend of PACES revision and support trainees to get a full 5 days of study leave per year to prepare for exams. We've developed over 60 PACES revision podcasts and an online video led induction for trainees to refer back to throughout the year and in February 2018 had our first CMT conference with Dr Trevor Gedeon from Chimp Management delivering the keynote presentation! We're presently developing a CT2 simulation day and this has already been trialled so can hopefully be expanded to more trainees in 2018/19!
We have a quarterly trainee forum that rotates around the region and is led by trainees with the first half a "safe" space being trainee only and senior staff including TPDs, Heads of School and Deputy Postgraduate Deans coming to the second half to both hear concerns and answer questions. This is augmented with a trainee WhatsApp group for trainees to raise issues and ask questions throughout the year. Since 2016 We've employed a full time "Leadership Fellow" (often a medical registrar on an Out Of Programme year) to both engage with trainees and work with the TPDs to develop the programme.
