About Synapse

What is Synapse?

In conjunction with the launch of the specialty schools, we have developed Synapse, the communications network to support excellence in postgraduate medical education across London.

This site has been built by us specifically for training in London. It has been designed and tested in conjunction with trainees and consultants across the specialties, as well as trust representatives throughout the region.

Who can use Synapse?

Anyone involved with London postgraduate medical training can use Synapse. All trainees will be provided with login credentials. Professionals involved in the delivery of training, supervision and management of trainees will be contacted separately.

Connecting with trainers and fellow doctors

Synapse works by bringing members of the London specialty schools in contact with each other. You can connect with fellow doctors, training programme directors, college tutors, consultants and other medical professionals. The My Contacts tool allows you to easily identify and communicate with your colleagues.

What else?

Synapse is interactive. This means you can contribute to web pages for your training programme, trust or specialty. You can also use online forums for professional discussion. Please see our terms and conditions for forum rules and guidelines.
