The Foundation Programme is a two year generic training programme designed for medical school graduates. It is designed to give Foundation Doctors a range of experience in a variety of specialties before choosing an area of medicine in which to specialise, and delivers an integrated educational programme with defined outcomes.

The Foundation School manages the allocation processes to Foundation Year 1 and Foundation Year 2, and supports the delivery of Foundation Training and the development of Foundation Doctors.

We are committed to providing high quality Foundation Training in all our Foundation jobs and we work together with the General Medical Council to ensure the national standards for training are met. Further information on Foundation training can be found on The UK Foundation Programme website.
