What can TEWV offer me?
Our dedicated postgraduate team provides specialist support to trainees to ensure curriculum needs are met and portfolios completed.
Weekly postgraduate teaching is available in each of the localities for all doctors to attend and weekly supervision is also provided via their clinical supervisor.
We also provide six monthly psychiatry placements for GP trainees, which will provide them exposure to service users with varying mental health problems and an insight into how inpatient and community services function.
As a Trust we provide four month rotations to foundation doctors from South Tees Acute Trust, County Durham and Darlington Acute Trust and North Tees and Hartlepool Acute Trust.
Why choose a placement with TEWV?
We can offer you a tailored placement that will be facilitated to meet your needs.
You may wish to undertake this placement because:
- You have had little or no previous experience of this specialty
- Or you will not spend time on a psychiatric rotation during your foundation years and want to ensure the opportunity to achieve the psychiatric behavioural curriculum outcomes
- Or you are fairly sure that you want to make your career in psychiatry, but want to be absolutely certain
