Medical Education Team

Welcome to University Hospitals Birmingham

University Hospitals Birmingham NHS Foundation Trust (UHB) is one of the largest teaching hospital trusts in England, serving a regional, national and international population.

It includes Birmingham Heartlands Hospital, the Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham, Solihull Hospital and Community Services, Good Hope Hospital in Sutton Coldfield and Birmingham Chest Clinic. We also run a number of smaller satellite units, allowing people to be treated as close to home as possible.


The Postgraduate Medical Education Department provides education, support and guidance to trainees based within the Heartlands, Good Hope and Solihull Hospitals. Our aim is to ensure trainees have an excellent training experience whilst based with us. We thrive on being accessible and have an open door policy.

The department is responsible for co-ordinating all Postgraduate Medical training programmes including the management of the Foundation Programme, Induction, and Study Leave. We also organise a number of in-house training programmes and Regional teaching days.

 

Each speciality has a dedicated Educational Lead/College Tutor who also provides support and guidance to trainees, this lead also provides a link into the relevant Postgraduate Specialty School.

We run monthly Medical Education meetings and regular Educational Governance meetings where training issues are discussed and fed back to the Trust Board. We are keen to ensure that trainees are represented on a number of committees throughout the University Hospitals Birmingham.

We have an active multi-disciplinary Education Centre, a Library and a Clinical Skills Laboratory on all hospital sites. All Education Centres are used for local teaching sessions by a number of specialities throughout the Trust.   We have a number of meeting rooms and access to video conferencing from site to site.

 

We have over 20,000 members of staff and we are committed to investing in their development and their health and wellbeing.
