Third year medical students from Newcastle University join the Trust in January until mid-July for their four week Essential junior rotation (EJR) in Psychiatry. During this time each student will have the opportunity to gain clinical experience in adult, elderly and community environments.

When commencing your placement you will receive an introduction from the medical education team and be given a timetable for the four weeks you are with us.  You will also receive a portfolio to help track and achieve your learning outcomes. 

During your time on placement support will be on hand from the team, and everything you need will be provided to make your experience as enjoyable as possible.

 

Shared primary care and mental health

Teaching of medical students

The purpose of the programme is to help medical students get a better understanding of mental health issues in primary care and the transition of care across primary and specialist mental health services.

The joint teaching initiative involves GPs in Teesside and consultant psychiatrists from TEWV.

GP teachers arrange for medical students to gain experience in assessment of consenting service users within primary care and the teaching session involves case discussion with the GP and consultant psychiatrist.

Small group teaching methods are used in this project.
