Medical training and education

Welcome to Brighton and Sussex University Hospitals NHS Trust, the largest university teaching hospitals group in Kent, Surrey and Sussex. We provide high quality medical education for medical students, junior doctors and various other healthcare professionals. Our expertise in a wide variety of specialties makes BSUH an excellent and exciting place for postgraduate training; our services are spread over different hospitals including the Princess Royal Hospital, Royal Sussex County Hospital and Royal Alexandra Children’s Hospital.

Over one million patients come through our doors every year and you will see a broad range of interesting cases. With the 3T’s (Teaching, Trauma, Tertiary Care) development under way, the Royal Sussex County Hospital in Brighton is well on its way to becoming an established Major Trauma Centre, offering our trainees unique development opportunities. We also have thriving Simulation, Human Factors and Leadership training programmes. Central to our ambition is our role as an academic centre, a provider of high quality teaching, and a host hospital for cutting edge research and innovation. On this we work with our partners, Brighton and Sussex Medical School, Health Education England and South Thames Foundation School.

The Trust is a Disability Confident employer, promotes equity and inclusion for our Black, and Minority Ethnic (BME) colleagues and is committed to becoming a Stonewall Top 100 LGBTQ+ Employer.  This means that we offer an unrivalled opportunity to develop your career, personally and professionally.
