Swansea Bay trainees are offered rotations in designated scheme hospital posts, which are based in four hospitals, Singleton, Morriston, Cefn Coed and Neath Port Talbot Hospital.
These can be a combination of the following posts:
During the hospital based component of training we operate a series of regional study days which comprise our ST1/2 curriculum along with lunchtime teaching every Tuesday.
The regional days are structured around the MRCGP curriculum which is the basis for the MRCGP exam. During ST1 and 2 years each trainee has an Educational Supervisor who is a GP trainer to supervise their hospital component of General Practice training.
For your final year of General Practice you will be allocated to one of our excellent training practices.
When in a GP Practice post you have a half day release which is based, in ST2, around clinical topics to ensure you have a wide knowledge base to sit the Applied Knowledge Test (AKT) and the Recorded Consultation Assessment (RCA).
