Life support courses regularly run on the Island, including ATLS/ALS and APLS, and study leave with pay and expenses for courses both on and off Island are supported.
The Department also supports the requirements for continuing professional development (CPD) as laid down by the Royal College of Physicians and is committed to providing time and financial support for these activities.
