Postgraduate Medical & Dental Education

The General Medical Council (GMC) influences and shapes postgraduate training through the North Western Deanery who works with local NHS Trusts to deliver their individual training programmes. All junior doctors have a named Clinical and Educational supervisor whose role it is to ensure their trainee develops against good standards expected for their level of training, which are dependent on local and GMC requirements. We host Postgraduate Dental Students from the University of Central Lancashire who are undertaking the MSc Oral Surgery Course. Each student attends four oral surgery sessions at the Royal Lancaster Infirmary in order to develop surgical skills for dental practice. The sessions are overseen by Mrs Ameeta Joshi, Consultant Maxillo Facial Surgeon.

Undergraduate Medical & Dental Education

We co-ordinate, deliver and quality assure the clinical component of the Lancaster Medical School MBChB degree programme. Alongside our core administrative team we have a dedicated clinical team led by the Director of Undergraduate Medical Education, comprising undergraduate lead clinicians, teaching fellows, clinical skills/nursing staff, midwifes and pharmacists all providing divisional and targeted support throughout the Trust on all areas of the curriculum. Together we strive to ensure quality education and training for our medical students. By working closely with our clinical teams we are able to identify the best learning opportunities and experiences for our students so that we can meet the requirements of the curriculum, whilst also meeting the Trust’s high standards of patient care.
