The Thames Valley Local Office (previously
referred to as the department of Postgraduate Medical and Dental
Education or Oxford PGMDE) coordinates the delivery and funding of
postgraduate medical and dental education in Oxfordshire,
Buckinghamshire and Berkshire. A map of the area we cover with
the main hospital sites is available by clicking on the link at the
foot of the page
We come under the umbrella of Health Education England to
support training and development for the multi professional
workforce in the Thames Valley region of England and look
after 2350 medical and dental trainees.
The local office is working to improve the quality of
patient care by ensuring that we produce doctors and dentists who
are educated, trained and motivated to play their part in a first
class modern health service.
Being part of Health Education England allows
the local office to take advantage of economies of scale
and reduce duplication of effort to ensure the most efficient use
of budget. It also enables us to develop a range of broader
regional initiatives to benefit both the quality of education and
training and patient
care across the Region.
The local office has retained its own identity and continues to
have strong links with the University of Oxford with which
we have set up a Clinical Academic School.
It also has a well established and highly regarded Professional
Support Unit which looks after doctors in difficulty.
