At Derriford we recognise that working in the Emergency Department for the first time can be daunting and unlike other hospital environments in to which you have previously been exposed. As a result we have a specific educational and induction programme aimed towards your needs. As adult learners we expect you to take your educational needs seriously and invest time in meeting those needs proactively.
Foundation doctors (FY1 & FY2) will be attending a “Foundation Doctor only” second day of induction, which will help to tackle some of the scenarios we expect you to frequently encounter in the Emergency Department.
In addition to this, your educational needs will be met as follows:
You are all of course very welcome to attend any of the ACCS education sessions, but we can unfortunately not guarantee you the time off the rota (protected), because we are releasing you for your own respective programmes.
