Training at UCLPartners (A trainee representatives perspective)
Acute Medicine as a specialty offers the opportunity to train in various specialties, sub-specialties and special interests as well as spending time working in Acute Medicine. The hospitals in this area are diverse, and several are centres of excellence, which makes it a good area to train in. We have the opportunity to attend UCLPartners General Internal Medicine (GIM) training days as well as pan-London Acute Internal Medicine (AIM) training days that are curriculum-mapped.
As trainee reps, working alongside our training programme director, we hope to be able to help you with any training issues you may have, or give advice on how to make the most out of Acute Internal Medicine.
