This rotating internship is full time and fixed term for 1 year, during which time accommodation is available on site.  In an average working week, you will work 35hrs and be available to do shift work, with some anti-social hours and cover colleague absences where necessary.  You will work under the direction of the senior clinical team, maintaining a high level of teamwork, while rotating round the various departments gaining significant experience and developing your skills.   

As part of your day to day duties you will have direct responsibility for patient care in the primary care, out of hours service as well as participating and assisting in the referral clinic.  Here you will rotate between anaesthesia, internal medicine, emergency medicine, radiology, neurology, oncology, orthopaedics and soft tissue surgery.  At all times you will be supporting student training and working under the care and supervision of an experienced member of staff who will provide you with direct training whenever required.
