The clinical education department at DVH is the best run, friendliest and most helpful of any I have worked with in my career. Their door is permanently open for help, advice or just a chat. No problem is unsurmountable and you feel that everything is done with the junior doctors best interests at heart. The department itself is dynamic, with loads going on and much to become involved in. Leadership programmes, teaching initiatives and simulations sessions are springing up all the time. The department really tries to ensure that junior doctors are seen as a vital and central part of the running of the hospital by highlighting all the work that they do on a regular basis. The department is definitely a real selling point of working at Darent Valley being one of the best aspects of working in the trust.
