Diabetes and Endocrinology Training runs for 5 years for the current specialist registrars and the new run-through programme trainees commencing at ST3 level.
The training programme in Yorkshire is currently divided into 2 sub-rotations: East (York, Hull, Scarborough, Scunthorpe) and West (Leeds, Bradford, Airedale, Harrogate, Mid-Yorkshire, Huddersfield and Calderdale). This encompasses both district general hospitals and teaching hospitals with major tertiary workloads such as Leeds and Hull. There are professorial units attached to Leeds (headed by Professor Peter Grant) and Hull-York (Professor Steve Atkin) with strong track records for attracting grant support for out-of-programme research leading to MDs and PhDs.
At present all trainees will train to CCST standard in both diabetes and endocrinology, and all trainees to level 2 standard for acute medicine, given that the majority of trainees will be aiming for senior hospital posts that will encompass unselected general and acute medicine commitments.
