Top tips for extra opportunities (e.g. teaching / skills )

Regular teaching programme (consultant led, trainee led, x-ray, case presentations).  Lots of bedside teaching.

Oxford - opportunities to attend clinics when wards well staffed so be organised

Oxford - one week of community of paediatrics, 3 days in neonatology including baby check clinics
