MYDoc Doctor Foundation – Urology/General Surgery

Mid Yorkshire Hospitals NHS Trust is pleased to announce the introduction of these new roles aimed at doctors who are passionate about their practice and their career outside traditional models.  Our posts will combine education and career development with practical patient-facing care.

These posts are not recognised UK training posts.  Nevertheless, MYDoc doctors will have a named supervisor and be supported in undertaking scheduled educational opportunities to consolidate and develop alongside their experiential learning, with certificated outcomes or credentialing to support career progression through other routes.

An Introduction to the Division/Specialty from Head of Service
