North Wales Clinical School

Clinical Education at Wrexham Maelor Hospital

Opportunities after Graduation

  • Since significant numbers of medical students began to train in North Wales, 90% of junior doctor posts are now filled by Cardiff University graduates (compared to 1999 when the number of placements was very small and all the Trusts had great difficulty in filling these posts).  It would therefore seem that students who come to North Wales for one of their clinical attachments like what they see and tend to return for an F1 post.
  • With an outstanding range of modern teaching facilities, the Wrexham Medical Institute is one of the UK’s leading postgraduate centres, providing an active centre for learning and the development of hospital and community doctors.  
  • The Institute houses a 126-seat state of the art lecture theatre and also has six seminar rooms, featuring fully integrated AV systems.  The interactive facilities include multiple computer inputs plus DVD and video replay, Elmo visual presenters and stereo audio and speech systems.  There is also a fully equipped surgical skills laboratory.
  • The library in the Medical Institute is offers excellent facilities.  It is an accredited HealthCare Library and is open 18 hours a day 7 days a week for doctors who work for the Board.  There are computer rooms with 20+ PCs, all with internet access.  The library subscribes to 190 journals and operates an interlibrary loan service.
