  • Within a training center there should be a team of specialists, each with subspecialty expertise and able to supervise and train a trainee.
  • Allied specialties must be present to a sufficient extent to provide the trainee with the opportunity of developing his/her skills in a multidisciplinary approach to patient care.

  • Specialist staff appointed to a training center will have completed all training requirements themselves and will have been trained also in teaching and mentoring trainee staff, and in multidisciplinary team working.
