Wales Deanery
for Postgraduate Medical
& Dental Education


Core Medical Training provides essential experience in the care of acutely ill patients and an introduction to a wide variety of medical subspecialties.

From here, trainees can decide upon their next career steps either within Medicine or other non-medical specialties.

Medicine offers opportunities both to those who enjoy acquiring practical skills and to those who prefer clinical assessment and data interpretation.

It requires good communication skills and teamwork, both of which are embedded in the Core Medical Training programmes in Wales, led by enthusiastic, motivated, educationally minded consultants.
