Interns are a vital part of our referral practice team with our team in. They assist with diagnostic investigations, surgical procedures and inpatient care. Learning is primarily via case-based teaching as patients are managed within the practice. Interns also attend journal and book clubs to broaden their understanding and foster critical thinking skills. Regular seminars are delivered by Linnaeus specialists so that interns can benefit from more didactic teaching. There are frequent opportunities to give short presentations on a clinical topic, interesting case or research project.

Interns are strongly encouraged to undertake clinical research within rotating or discipline-specific programmes, with the aim of publication in a peer-reviewed journal and presentation at an international conference.

This is supervised by a senior clinical team member with support from our Clinical Research Leads and the Linnaeus Clinical Research and Excellence Director. There is a strong ethos of research collaboration across the group with over 500 active research projects in 2020.
