Welcome to the site for Respiratory Medicine Trainees in North Central and East London. 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 sync 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 Days” and “Archived Training Days” tabs.
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. Below is the list of training hospitals for Respiratory Medicine within the region:
Although the site is aimed at North Central East London trainees, the website is an 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 information on this site is written by the STC trainee reps. It is based on notes taken from training days and issues discussed at training committee meetings. As much 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 these with your Consultants in order to make diagnostic and treatment decisions.
Hello i finished my respiratory/intensive care training overseas and currently i am in a clinical job at UCL for one year in intensive care (outside national training).
If by the end of this year i want to apply for CESR-CP in respiratory care i will need to present my MRCP right ?
And could this year in NHS be counted somehow and my previous experience ? Or is it mandatory to start the training at ST3 level ? Is there a way to access St4 for ex ?
Finally when applying and matching preference will I be able to choose London or anything near London since my husband is here and prefer not to rent to different places. Finally what type of Visa will i have to apply for if i got an st3 position ? Is it a HCW visa ? Thank you
Hi, thank you for your query. Apologies for the delay in coming back to you. Have you found the answers to your questions? Do you still need advice as I will try my best to find the best person who could answer your questions?
