  • Settling into Northern Ireland
  • An Overview of GP and Hospital Specialty Training programmes
  • Professional Support and Wellbeing Services
  • Leadership Opportunities
  • Single Lead Employer Updates

Dr Ian Steele, Postgraduate Dean and Director of Education NIMDTA said,

“I am delighted to welcome the new cohort of Trainees to Northern Ireland and help settle them into the region. The Welcome Event provided a fantastic opportunity for Trainees to meet NIMDTA Senior Team members as well as representatives from high profile stakeholders such as the General Medical Council and British Medical Association. It was great to see high engagement from Trainees throughout the evening with lots of important queries being answered by our panel of experts. I would like to thank all those who attended.”
