Six reasons why should you choose to train in the Severn PGME

Just like undergraduate courses not all postgraduate training programs delivery the same quality of training. The question faced by the Foundation Doctor applying to Specialty Training programs is, what criteria should I use to differentiate one Training Program from another?

The strengths of any training program can be judged by looking at the following features of the training;

Reason One: The Training Units in Severn

Reason Two: Surgical  and  Clinical Teaching Programmes

Reason Three: Research Opportunities

Reason Four:  Quality Assurance Processes in Severn PGME

Reason Five: FRCOphth Examinations

Reason Six: Fellowship Placements and Consultant Posts
