Placement locations

The course is delivered in close partnership with the trainee’s employer: Tees, Esk and Wear Valleys NHS Foundation Trust (spanning County Durham and Darlington, Teesside, North Yorkshire, York and Selby). Other local NHS Trusts are also important partners and stakeholders in your training. You may be placed anywhere within the North East and Yorkshire region and may need to travel. As the use of public transport can be difficult and time consuming, it helps if trainees have their own transport.

In order to fully meet the placement and teaching requirements of the course, you must live within a reasonable and commutable distance of Teesside University, Middlesbrough campus.
