Welcome to the 3rd year Medicine for Older People attachment. We are proud of our student teaching here at PGH and have been recognised with a Clinical Teaching Excellence Award from the University. Working in Elderly medicine is all about teamwork and we would like you to be part of the team. We look after older patients with medical problems that include hip fractures, stroke, dementia, frailty, continence and mobility issues and end of life care. The patients have complex needs and this placement aims to give you an insight into our work and inspire you to pursue careers in our specialty.
Welcome to your 3rd year placement. This unique attachment covers spinal, cardiology, orthopaedics and respiratory. It provides excellent opportunities for learning about specialised services, often only found in tertiary referral centres.
This attachment was awarded a clinical teaching excellence award in 2014. The team aims to maintain this high standard and welcomes feedback from all the students to help achieve this. Many students who do their undergraduate training here at Pinderfields return for their foundation years, a reflection of the popularity of the student placements.

Mr Kryjak leads the placement and incorporates breast surgery and clinics, general surgery and ward work. Students are encouraged to attend and assist in theatre and perform procedures such as suturing. Students will also participate in a week of urology, led by an enthusiastic MDT. Finally there is the chance to join the regional burns team for a day.
