Welcome to the Cardiology pages at Severn Postgraduate Medical Education. 

There are excellent training opportunities in the region with a Tertiary (Cardiothoracic Surgical centre) in Bristol and well developed cardiac departments in Gloucester, Cheltenham, Bath, Swindon, Taunton, Yeovil in addition to Southmead and Frenchay Hospitals in the North of Bristol.

There are 19 full-time National Training Numbers (NTNs) in the region. The training rotation consists of a 5 year programme across these sites with opportunities for Out of Programme Experience either as Clinical Fellowships or in a period of Research.

All aspects of Cardiology training are provided for in the region.

As an area to live and work the South West has much to offer. An exciting period of regeneration has been taking place in Bristol. There is the regency town of Cheltenham and the City of Bath is a World Heritage site. Devon and Cornwall are within an hour or twos drive and the Welsh coast and mountains are similarly easily reached for those with a passion for the outdoors.

All enquiries should be directed to the Training Programme Director:
