This section of the site aims to provide tools and resources to aid with trainee development. We have listed some useful links below and have also provided information about the varied Regional Specialty Teaching that is available.

Also, have a look at our brand new Reflections on Training page, which will feature short articles by current and former trainees in the region as they look back at the training and research experiences they have had during their time in the Northern Deanery.
