” In one word – awesome. I found it very supportive and friendly from the outset. We get a full day for the VTS which was a combination of experiential learning and small groups in the morning (and topics relevant to the year). The afternoon tended to be slightly more structured, and less organic, teaching. This covered a wide range of topics from clinical to practice management. The people behind the VTS – yourself, Claire, Lou and Bredan all do an excellent job; are very supportive and easy to talk to on both work related and non-work related matters. Getting advice isn’t problematic as you guys are very approachable.
“The doctors who join the VTS come from a variety of backgrounds. This brings in new ideas. The groups themselves are good for learning and support each other and we try to work with our colleagues so everyone did well. Combining all these factors, I think produce the stellar results that have come from this programme.
“Finally as I move into my job from training; I realize the programme directors spent time with all of us to prepare us for life after the VTS. Thus enabling us to be sought after for the jobs we ourselves want. Thank you for all your help through the years.
