One of the Trust’s top surgeons has been voted Clinical Trainer of the Year by his students for the fifth year in a row.
Kevin Wembridge, a Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon at Rotherham Hospital’s Trauma and Orthopaedic Department received the accolade from final year MBBS Medicine students from the University of Sheffield, who vote for their favourite tutor every year.
The award was established five years ago by Professor Nigel Bax, Dean of the University’s Medical School.
Mr Wembridge, who joined the Trust in 2006, said: “Some of the young people I teach in years to come will be looking after you, your friends and family so I think it’s important they are able to access the best training possible.
“A lot of hospitals don’t do orthopaedic training and many GPs haven’t had any further orthopaedic training since they studied medicine and became GPs, so it’s about investing in their future and skills.
“If I can help students get through their exams smoothly, boost their career and hopefully inspire them to specialise in orthopaedics then it’s all worthwhile. I’m really pleased to get the award, it’s an honour.”
Congratulations on your award Kevin.
