Welcome to the site for Respiratory Medicine Trainees in North East Thames. Here you will find all the information emailed out to trainees on the rotation, including dates of training days and conferences (see the Google Calendar, which you can synch with your ical or Google calendar), and resources including summaries of requirements for ARCP sign-offs and answers to FAQs. We also have links to useful websites. Summaries of some recent training days with key points and links to further reading can be found under the “Training Programme” tab. For new ST3s there are some tips on getting to grips with being a Respiratory SpR, and for everyone there are some useful resources (including books, websites, apps and courses), suggested by current trainees.
This site is always a work in progress. We have profiles of each regional hospital with areas of specialist interest and unique educational opportunities which we try to keep up to date. There is also information on research opportunities, medical education and QIP. If you have information that you think would be useful to trainees, or you spot a broken link, please get in touch.
Although the site is aimed at North East Thames trainees, the website is open access, and we hope that other trainees and Respiratory healthcare professionals will find the content useful too. We are supporters of the #FOAMed movement and keen to contribute to the “globally accessible crowd-sourced educational adjunct providing inline (contextual) and offline (asynchronous) content to augment traditional educational principles.”
Disclaimer: all of the information on this site is written by the STC trainee reps. It is based on notes taken at training days and issues discussed at training committee meetings. As far as possible links are provided to sources of information, particularly academic literature, such that you can appraise the information yourself. We take no responsibility for inaccuracies, and encourage you to read guidelines and literature yourself, and discuss this with your Consultants in order to make diagnostic and treatment decisions.
