The Assessment Suite at RVI is well supported with plenty of more senior doctors (CTs/SpRs) to reach out to for help when needed. Nursing staff are brilliant as well, work well together with the medics to get patients seen quickly. Excellent night cover as you are not expected to cover BoH wards. Good place to get a flavour of a wide range of medical conditions. After the morning post-take ward round there is no other fixed time for a ward round, so you just need to find the consultants and get them to see your patient whenever you are done. The consultants are great and normally happy to offer feedback on any patient that you've clerked. Formal teaching is limited to 15 minutes per day so not the best.

2months on Medicine Wards Variable depending on ward some evening and weekends on call. No nights 2months on Assessment Suite Rota is brutal in terms of schedule - >15nights in 2 months. However very well supported on nights and days. Days can be extremely busy but never overwhelming. Nights generally quite relaxed. Seniors including Consultants are supportive Overall good for and acute Med job imo Average F1 experience compared to other F1 rotations.

Terrible rota. Very toxic assessment suite environment. Nursing staff extremely rude to any ethnic/non white juniors. Lots of bullying and racial micro aggressive behaviours from nursing staff as well as ward clerks. Senior doctors also offer no support to junior doctors when issues with nursing staff arise. If you’re white, you’ll be fine though.
