Clinical training

University Hospitals Birmingham NHS Foundation Trust (UHB) is a leading international tertiary centre with a track record of delivering clinical excellence and establishing relationships with overseas institutions. The Trust provides clinical education and training to medical staff from other countries, including International Fellowship opportunities, to support the developments of their own specialty services. It also supports various ad-hoc clinical education and training initiatives with clinicians from around the world.

Located on the same campus as the University of Birmingham Medical School, UHB consultant staff are often appointed as honorary lecturers and teaching fellows of the University allowing students from the Medical School to benefit from “hands on” clinical training. UHB provides formal clinical education to over 100 medical students at any given time.

UHB operates intensive foundation year medical programmes, core surgical teaching programmes and core medical teaching programmes for junior doctors across the region. UHB has 552 regional training grade doctors on rotation at any given time.

UHB and the University of Birmingham (UoB) provide a broad range of postgraduate, leadership and clinical skills training to nursing staff. UHB also provides the clinical training for UoB undergraduate student nurses, training 200 student nurses per annum.

The quality of the teaching and training provided by UHB is recognised by the United Kingdom’s military and The Royal Centre for Defence Medicine (RCDM) trains all UK military medical and nursing personnel here, ensuring that they are fit to serve when deployed to conflict zones.
