I am currently a trainee in Sunderland. I love the North East and I would encourage people to come here to do their training. The North East is one of the most welcoming places in the UK that I have ever been to."
I am an international medical graduate and now a Core Psychiatry trainee in HENE. As a trainee, I feel valued and supported. The NTW hospital trust offers plenty of learning opportunities. North east is definitely picturesque and lots of things to see and do! People are friendly. One can enjoy and get trained at the same time.”
Since graduating in medicine, I have been able to buy my own property and my daily commute is either a 5 minute walk or a 15 minute car journey depending on the hospital I am working in that day. I began core training in Psychiatry in 2014 and began specialising in Old Age Psychiatry in 2017. NTW has been an excellent employer that I have always felt listens to the concerns of trainees and aims to do its best to help”
