North Yorkshire and East Coast (NYEC) Academic Posts
"My academic rotation was in Respiratory Medicine. It gave me an incredible opportunity to get involved in clinical trials allowing me to develop my skills in statistics, writing peer-reviewed journals and enhancing my research skills. This in turn made me a much more rounded individual and therefore a more competitive candidate for core surgical training."

All academic trainees in YHFS have funding provided to complete a PG Certificate in either Research or Medical Education. Trainees should work with their Academic Supervisor and Employer to make sure that the required modules can be completed in both FY1 and FY2 without causing any significant impact on their clinical placements.
As YHFS are funding these courses there is an expectation for trainees to complete the course over the 2 years of Foundation training. While YHFS mandate completion of this course, due to it being an excellent additional opportunity for our academic trainees, it is not a mandatory requirement for completion of Foundation training as it is additional to the Foundation curriculum.
YHFS believe our Academic trainees will welcome this opportunity and will strive to work with their Supervisors, the University and their Employer in order to ensure this can be completed.
YHFS have also created a checklist of competencies, taken from the UKFPO Academic Compendium, to be used as a guide for Academic trainees over their 2 year programme. Again this can’t be mandated, but will provide a structure of expectation and record Academic achievement throughout their Academic programme. Again the trainee should work with their Supervisors, the University and their Employers to complete as many of the requirements on the checklist as possible.
