Diabetes & Endocrinology

Welcome to Guy’s and St Thomas’ for Kings Health Partners Endocrinology and Diabetes specialty training programme.

The Endocrinology and Diabetes training programme in South London will prepare trainees for a career in Endocrinology and Diabetes and also support their development in a number of other areas. Our programme is underpinned by effective clinical and educational supervision and effective communication between clinical and educational supervisors to promote a culture of prompt identification of trainees’ learning needs.
There is extensive access to Simulation and Interactive Learning skills and academic training through a significant BRC grant as part of the AHSC. They will have on going professional career support through KHP, together with inter-professional training within education and training as well as communication skills enhancement.

The rotation will expose newly appointed trainees to best practice, within well-resourced and supervised Departments prior to placement with LEPs in District General hospitals. Starting within one of the larger Trusts will allow trainees to become comfortable with the basics of specialty practice prior to the immersion within DGHs. The trainees will be visible to those organising and delivering the rotation and develop a sense of belonging as well as become aware of the opportunities for learning, career development and acquisition of specialist skills from the beginning of training.
