The Trauma and Orthopaedic department of Bedford Hospital is focused on teaching, training, and developing its junior staff (Foundation Year, core and specialist trainees, and middle grade doctors), and of guiding them through the process of preparing for both higher and exit examinations.
Trainees engage in their learning process through the morning trauma meetings and weekly teaching sessions at lunchtime, which include radiology meetings, journal club meetings, and clinical examination skill teaching.
We actively encourage our junior doctors to conduct audit and research, and to take part in all departmental training and teaching activities.
