End of Year Junior Doctors in the Southern Trust
24/09/2014A group of Junior Doctors have completed their first year of training from 2013 – 2014 in Daisy Hill Hospital, Newry.
Dr John Harty, Foundation Programme Director, Southern Health and Social Care Trust says: “It was with great pleasure and a highly rewarding experience to work with these young doctors to help their transition from being medical students to practising doctors throughout the year.
“The Southern Trust Acute Hospitals are an excellent place to put training into practice and learn new skills. This was an exciting and formative time in their careers where they were exposed to a range of medical specialities and cases, and increased responsibilities to ensure patients were provided with high quality of care. It was also a time of great adjustment. Getting used to life after being a student is a feat in itself.
“Our Junior Doctors had great support from clinical training and medical administration staff ensuring they had the skills and knowledge to see them through their careers. Many of our Trainees have been Undergraduate students in our Hospitals which helps to prepare them for their role as Doctors”.
As Queens University Teaching Hospitals, Daisy Hill and Craigavon Area hospitals provide an essential part of the student doctor undergraduate programme by offering high quality clinical placements to medical students.
