This rotation was the highlight of my FY1 year at the Paget. I learnt a lot of acute and general medicine working on EADU. Everyday on the take the consultants would take their time to explain and teach at the bedside. Being a small department with a lot of acutely unwell patients there were plenty of opportunities to practise clinical skills. There was always a registrar available as well if times got tough. It prepared me for my Gen med rotation after and would recommend to any FY1. The hours are long but they're rewarding hours and I always left having learnt something new.

Really helpful consultants that are keen on teaching on the ward rounds and in handover. However, very little formal teaching available and often difficult to leave to attend foundation teaching/grand rounds etc. Consultants and registrars generally supportive and very willing to give advice. Lots of opportunities for procedures/clinical skills even for FY1s. Lots of clerking so see a range of patients and often get useful feedback on plans. Lots of FY1s about so very social but very little senior cover (1 med reg and 1 SHO, 2 consultant ward rounds per day but otherwise very little consultant presence). Only doctors office in the hospital. Rota co-ordinator very accessible and keen to facilitate leave. Although sometimes this leaves the unit understaffed.
