Gastroenterology

Welcome to North East and North Central London Gastroenterology. This rotation offers the unique opportunity to train in the unique and diverse environment of North East London and Essex. Trainees have the opportunity to train on rotations which are flexible to their training needs and circumstances.

There are a wide range of developmental opportunities available and almost all trainees gain ‘added value’ during their time with us, leaving the rotation with sub-specialty skills and usually having completed a period of out of programme. There is a regional teaching programme which includes simulation and the region hosts a number of national courses to which trainees are invited. There is excellent educational supervision and support for trainees’ personal and professional development by the training faculty.

Training at UCLPartners (A trainee representatives perspective)

North East and North Central London is an excellent region in which to train.

It contains several teaching and district general hospitals that offer great general experience as well as a full range of sub-specialty training opportunities, including liver transplantation, advanced IBD, nutrition and HPB medicine.

There is an active teaching programme which includes monthly training days, access to simulation training and several national courses that are run annually in the region.

The first three years of the rotation are flexible and responsive to trainees learning needs. All trainees will expect to spend one year in one of the three teaching hospitals and two in one of the district general hospitals in the region during that time. Placements for ST6 and ST7 are allocated at an annual competitive interview, again in line with trainees’ learning needs. All of the clinical placements offer training opportunities that will fulfil the curriculum and trainees have access to a full range of experience in Gastroenterology and Hepatology.
