CNWL launches first UK regional teaching programme for trainees in community sexual reproductive health

CNWL has launched the first ever UK regional training programme in community sexual reproductive health (CSRH) for postgraduate medical trainees in this specialty from across London.

The programme will offer trainees specialist teaching by leaders in this field and the opportunity to develop their management and leadership skills whilst networking with one another.

CSRH Health is a small specialty and this programme covers aspects of the curriculum that cannot be easily delivered by individual training centres. The first session took place in early October and focused on the skills and competencies required as part of the public health module.

Dr John Lowe, CNWL’s Director of Postgraduate Medical Education, said: “I am thrilled that CNWL, as Lead Provider, is hosting the first ever programme of this kind for community sexual reproductive health in the UK. CSRH is a small but growing community specialty with a broad curriculum which is shaping the way for the future of training and services.”

CNWL is the Lead Provider for the provision of postgraduate medical training in CSRH across London and supports other Trusts in developing and delivering training to improve the quality of education for trainee doctors and consultants in this field.
