    The good times roll. And lets face it, if there is tsunami its bye-bye UK. Never mind the south west.

    Plus you got the better deal because year 3-4 or year 5 is far better in Exeter than Year 1 &2.

    By the time I finish I would have spent some time in every locality, and been based at 4/5 of the localities.

    These are the possible rotations:

    For those who start in Exeter
    Exeter > Plymouth > Truro
    Exeter > Truro > Plymouth
    Exeter > Plymouth > Exeter

    For those who start in Plymouth
    Plymouth> Exeter > Plymouth
    Plymouth> Exeter > Torbay
    Plymouth > Truro > Exeter


    Students who were based in Exeter who then repeated Year 2 in Plymouth, have expressed that the Clinical Skills staff and LSRC in Plymouth have a slight edge on Exeter. (Although let me stress that this has no impact on learning or outcomes, its just an observation)

    I only really say that Exeter would be better for year 3-4/5 because the Hospital is far nearer to the city centre/campus and the hospital is slightly smaller giving you the opportunity to make the most of a Medium sized teaching hospital.

    But Derriford is the South Wests Major trauma centre, has all the Tertiary sub-specialties like neurosurgery, and is the one of the largest hospitals in the country.
