This programme aims to provide a very high quality of Thoracic Respiratory Medicine training. Trainees will be appointed to the rotation, not to specific hospitals. The first post is as described in the advert, thereafter posting will be arranged by the TPD taking into account firstly the training requirements of all the trainees, then specific individual requirements and finally personal preferences. However, wherever possible trainees will only be asked to make one major move within the rotation. A period of OOPE for research or sub-specialty training is encouraged. ICU and thoracic surgery experience are both available in several centres.
