East Midlands: Leicester and Nottingham
ST1 trainees will be primarily based in either Leicester or Nottingham for the year. They will spend most of the time in that centre for practical training but will get together for regular ST1 training session, block teaching and national training events. The year one training will be managed primarily from Leicester where the ST1 training infrastructure is well-established. The joint school leads will be Dr K West (Leicester Royal Infirmary), Dr A McGregor (Leicester Royal Infirmary) and Dr Philip Kaye (Queen's Medical Centre, Nottingham). The training programme is run through the East Midlands Healthcare Workforce Deanery by the Histopathology School board, which include representation from each participating hospitals, the deanery and trainee representatives.
Allocation of trainees
Year one trainees will be allocated to Nottingham or Leicester based on the number of available spaces, trainee preference and interview rank (if required). Although ST2 training is more likely to continue at the region of ST1 placement, it is not precluded that there could be crossover at ST2 level (or even beyond).
ST1 trainees will have dedicated teaching sessions every 1-2 weeks in either Leicester or Nottingham. In addition they will be able to attend FRCPath course sessions in both centres. There will be three compulsory block teaching weeks and additional national training days (e.g. academic training day, mock OSPE exam, Post Mortem Training Days)
Educational supervisors will be allocated locally. Mid year reviews and ARCPs will be conducted jointly between Leicester and Nottingham.
