GMC National Trainee Survey – in 2016, Wales was rated the highest region across the UK for trainee satisfaction. That’s the top region for all of the UK! We also have two training sites ranked in the top 10, for overall satisfaction ‘green flags’ and no training sites in the bottom 10.

IMT is the primary stage of training for Medicine and the entry point for those trainees who wish to follow a career in the medical specialties such as cardiology, dermatology, gastroenterology, etc. Rotations will give trainees much varied experience of, and exposure to, a range of medical specialties, the workings of differently-sized and structured hospitals and Health Boards; as well as the chance to work with and for a much greater variety of colleagues and patients from different backgrounds and with disparate levels of experience; in addition to the opportunity to become much more involved in medical teaching and training.
We offer our IMT trainees free PACES courses as well as a stuctured teaching programme, in line with the national curriculum. Trainees also retain the same Educational Supervisor throuough their three year programme.
