House Officer Teaching Programme
CETU coordinates the teaching programme for first year Interns at ADHB.  All first year Interns get two hours of 'protected time' each week for teaching, which occurs every Tuesday from 2pm - 4pm.  Interns have an opportunity to have their say on the content of this teaching.

Clinical Skills Courses
Interns at ADHB have the opportunity to improve their clinical skills without the stress of an exam. Held four to five times a year, Clinical Skills sessions cover cardiology, neurology, respiratory medicine, dermatology and ophthalmology.
Procedural Skills Courses
To ensure that first year Interns are well prepared, the House Officers starting in November are offered a Procedural Skills course soon after arrival. Suturing, catheterisation, lumbar punctures, and rectal examinations are just a few of the procedures included in this programme.

Grand Rounds
