Medical students at the Royal Free Hospital feel well supervised and supported, says a new report.
The General Medical Council (GMC) carried out a review of medical education and training between October and December last year.
The results, published last week, showed standards in fitness to practice, supervision, assessment and quality management were being met at the Hampstead hospital, which provided clinical placements to around 600 students and trainees in the last year.
The report said: “Medical students were positive about their induction. Trainees were equally positive about their experience of training at the Royal Free.
“Core surgery trainees told us their consultants were available and approachable and there were opportunities to gain clinical experience under supervision.”

But there were a number of recommendations, which called on the trust which runs the hospital to clarify the roles and responsibilities of trainees and improve communication with students.
Medical director professor Stephen Powis said: “We’re delighted that this report backs up what we already know at the Royal Free, that this is an excellent place to train for medical students and new doctors alike.”
