Pros - Plenty senior support as a MTC there's always at least one consultant & few registrars around - Self-rostering - All seniors are extremely friendly and approachable - Tertiary centre therefore all specialties are in-house Cons - 1 in 2 weekends (which might move down to 1 in 3 at some point in the next 1000 years) - Limited training opportunities (only 1 resus shift per month and EM trainees are highly prioritised) - Understaffed nursing and CSW - Busy department therefore consultants care about service provision & numbers >>> your training - Exciting opportunities often go to EM trainees & registrars and the BS left for non-EM SHOs - Virtually unable to attend any teaching because working all the time

Great department with excellent senior support, consultant and 2 SpRs overnight. Scheduled resus shifts for SHOs and plenty of chance to get stuck in with sick patients. Only minor downside is access to formal teaching, as you don’t get released to attend. However they record everything so you can access it later. Also 1:2 weekends....

Pros: Abundance of senior support no matter what time of day Major trauma centre- allocated shifts in resus. Self-rostering for FY2s! Cons: Really intense rota (which will be changed very soon apparently)- 1 in 2 weekends, lots of nights etc Lots of training online sessions which are difficult to attend due to the rota Overall despite feeling a bit exhausted, I learnt a great deal, saw some exciting (and sometimes rare) things and got to work with a great team.

Excellent well ran department. would really recommend JCF/F3 role here. Self rostering is a game changer for ED rotas. 1/3 weekends. Great senior support.
