We have introduced innovative teaching programmes such as our themed fifth year teaching days, ultrasound courses, clinical fellows teaching, simulation days, mock OSCE evenings, revision sessions, lunchtime daily teaching, radiology workshops, gynae and paediatric teaching days plus much more to enhance our placements that already evaluate extremely positively
In the academic year of 2020-2021 we achieved our highest rating for our undergraduate placements that we have ever received
We have placements running throughout the year over a wide range of specialities for medical students who are currently at University of Leeds School of Medicine
Welcome you to your Tuesday morning clinical placement at the Mid Yorkshire Hospitals NHS Trust.
You will be working in pairs on a rotational placement and the aim of the placement is to gain an appreciation of how the hospital runs and how different teams of staff contribute to safe and effective patient care and experience. With this in mind, each week, you will rotate out to a variety of clinical placements throughout the Trust and then return at 12 midday to the Undergraduate Skills Lab in the Trust HQ/Education Centre at Pinderfields to have a plenary session where we will reflect as a group on what you have seen and experienced before you go back to Leeds on the bus organised by the Medical School.
Hello and welcome to your Second Year Placement at the Mid -Yorkshire Hospitals NHS Trust.
You will be spending Thursdays throughout the year with us on clinical placement- having teaching on History taking and Examination relevant to Body Systems which you are studying in your second year curriculum. You will be going into the ward areas with Clinical Teachers and Clinical Fellows to put into practice the theory you have learnt, meeting patients with clinical signs and symptoms allowing you to contextualise your learning.
We will be doing clinical skills and an RRAPID workshop with you as well as a session on Pharmacology. You will also have an introduction to Radiology- learning about x rays and their relevance to diagnosis
The undergraduate medical education team at Mid Yorkshire has a team of nine clinical fellows who are all post foundation training doctors in roles dedicated in delivering near-peer teaching and simulation with undergraduate medical students and FY1 doctors. Many often combine this role with work in clinical specialities across West Yorkshire. The team have been recognised for their excellent contribution to undergraduate medical education, receiving Clinical Teacher Excellence Awards from the University of Leeds.
The team work with medical students in years 1 to 5 alongside the clinical teachers. For students in years 1 and 2, the clinical fellows support our clinical teachers with bedside teaching, skills teaching and delivery of RRAPID. Students in Year 3, receive small group teaching from the clinical fellows on a range of topics. The clinical fellow team also work alongside specialities to deliver teaching to 4th year students attending Mid Yorkshire, including a paediatric theme day, an induction for Acute and
Critical Care students (comprising of simulation and skills teaching, as well as speciality airway management) and obstetrics and gynaecology teaching.
For 5th Year Students the clinical fellows have designed and deliver IMPRES5 (Investigations, Management, Prescribing and Simulation in Year 5). This is award winning 8-week programme allows each 5th year on placement at Mid Yorkshire to attend a full day of protected teaching each week. It includes case-based discussions, investigation interpretation and simulations centred around a topic for example “the breathless patient”, as well as a cardiac arrest day and for those post final exams, a FY1 preparation day. This programme assists in equipping final years to be safe, competent and confident FY1 doctors.
The clinical fellows work cross-site at both Dewsbury Oakwell Centre and Pinderfields Trust Headquarters and continually striving to deliver high quality and enjoyable teaching. We hope to see you soon!
