Wessex Cardiology Trainees

Specialty clinics and other study leave options

Within Wessex there are a number of excellent opportunities for trainees to get experience in sub-specialty areas and leadership. We are creating a list of these different opportunities which  can potentially help guide your future sub-specialty choices as well as helping to get those trickier areas of the portfolio signed off! These should be considered suitable for study leave
