Wessex Cardiology Trainees

Training Days - Cardiology & GIM

Confused about our training?

All Wessex cardiology trainees have access to a number of training events taking place throughout the year.

Split between local days delivered by our cardiology departments within Wessex and the National Training Days at the BCS conference in June and a further event in the Autumn. Attendance at 60% of these events is mandatory.

You should make arrangements to attend in good time, cancelling clinical commitments and informing your educational supervisor. If you are having difficulties attending, please contact either Lizzy or Kri. All of your consultants support your attendance at these meetings, but it is appreciated that at times, rota commitments and delivery of emergency care will prevent 100% attendance.

Other training opportunities are circulated through this website and your email updates. These include officially endorsed BJCA and BCS courses, in addition to other training events that are of interest to trainees in our region. Approval and funding for attendance should be through the usual channels for study leave that exist in your hospital.

Lastly, we have a number of education and social informal events that are arranged by trainees.

GIM REGIONAL TRAINING DAYS (For Dual Accredit Trainees)
These are roughly once a month arranged locally, and again attendance at at least 60% is required for ARCP.

Please find the link before for the dates for 2022;

We will always endeavour to ensure that the Cardiology and GIM Training days do not clash to maximise attendance for both curriculums - unfortunately this is not always possible and we apologise when this occurs.
