Rotation modules


Watch this short animation introducing the new rotation modules

Details of the changes

We have introduced a new model for rotation modules.

  • Each rotation is 4 to 8 weeks long allowing for more time for trainees to train in their own department.
  • Rotations need to be completed in the first year.
  • Rotations will be related to the trainees own specialty.
  • Rotations will allow trainees to develop an understanding of the role of clinical scientists and the multidisciplinary team in their speciality and related specialties.
  • Trainees will gain knowledge and understanding of other specialties and have opportunities to network, explore the patient pathway and the wider NHS.
  • Experiences and knowledge will be transferrable to specialist training.

Rotation learning outcomes

  1. Explore the contribution of the rotation specialty to patient care
  2. Identify the roles and relationships of the multidisciplinary team in the rotation specialty
  3. Describe the working practices of the rotation specialty
  4. Examine the impact of innovation in the rotation specialty
  5. Review the effect of legislation in the rotation specialty
  6. Compare and contrast the practice of rotation specialty with other specialties

Rotations can be scheduled as needed within the first year, for example rotations could be scheduled one after the other making time for training in the trainees own department at the end of the year or spread out across the year with the trainee returning to their own department in between rotations. We’d recommend focusing on the rotation for your trainees own specialty first.
