Return to Training

 

 

Many trainees take a period of absence from training for a number of reasons. This can include parental leave, OOP and sickness. Returning to training after a period of absence can be a daunting and difficult time for trainees. Time out of clinical practice can impact on a clinician’s confidence and skills whatever stage of training they may be at.

SuppoRTT is a national programme designed to improve the return to training experience for all trainees who have been out of training for 3 months or more.
