The Northern Clinical school admin team love what they do, and we now know that others love what we do as well! In March the team were honoured with an award for Exceptional Performance by General Staff by the Faculty of Medicine. Awarded by Professor Bruce Robinson, it was said that ‘The Northern Clinical School Education Team provides outstanding support to both staff and students as evidenced by feedback from tutors, volunteer pretend patients and students for the past three years. The Team continually strives to improve the student and staff experience and has implemented and evaluated numerous initiatives with this goal in mind. The team has created an environment in which both students and staff feel valued and supported.’

Congratulations to the whole team!
