Foundation Training

Foundation Programme

The Foundation Programme is a two-year general training programme which forms the bridge between medical school and specialist/general practice training. Trainees will have the opportunity to gain experience in a series of placements in a variety of specialties and healthcare settings. Learning objectives for each stage will be specific and focused on demonstration of clinical competences.

Foundation Year 1 (F1)

The first year of the Foundation Programme builds upon the knowledge, skills and competences acquired in undergraduate training. The learning objectives for this year are set by the General Medical Council and full registration is based on the achievement of specific competences. Please refer to the Foundation Pages on the Health Education East of England website for more information on the Foundation programme curriculum.

Foundation Year 2 (F2)

The second year of the Foundation Programme builds on the first year of training. Training also encompasses the generic professional skills applicable to all areas of medicine - team work, time management, communication and IT skills.
