STOP THE PRESS!! Professional & Generic Skills Programme - Applications Open!

The Professional and Generic Skills (PGS) Programme is a collaboration between Health Education England - South West (HEE-SW) and the University of Plymouth’s Faculty of Health.

It is for doctors in training (GP and Specialty ST3+), as well as SAS doctors and dental trainees.

The PGS Programme is fully aligned with the GMC’s Generic Professional Capabilities framework, and provides a unique combination of skills, knowledge and thinking to develop your career as a clinical leader within an evolving NHS.

The Programme consists of seven modules. You will need to commit to nine days throughout the academic year for the delivery sessions, plus time required to write a final reflection.

The seven modules cover the following key themes:

• Patient safety and quality systems;
• Teaching and learning;
• Communication skills;
• Medical ethics, medicine and the law;
• NHS structures and funding;
• Leadership and Management (two days); and
• Quality Improvement (two days).

The PGS Programme also provides the opportunity for further development, through progression onto postgraduate taught programmes at Plymouth University (including Clinical Education; Healthcare Management, Leadership & Innovation; Global Health).
