Supported return to training

With either option, the transition back to clinical training from research needs careful planning. Health Education England have developed SuppoRTT to enable trainees to have a safe, supported return to work by offering a wide range of learning and support resources, which can be used to create a bespoke package of support which suits their individual needs. Doctors in training are encouraged to work with educational supervisors to plan their return as much as possible.

The range of resources available includes: 

  • A period of enhanced supervision
  • Funding for a period of supernumerary time
  • Online and face-to-face refresher courses and simulation training
  • Mentoring or professional coaching
  • Conferences, workshops, and webinars
  • Online learning resources
  • Funding for other courses or training, as individually required
