Academic Foundation Programme


The Academic Foundation Programme provides a fabulous opportunity for foundation doctors to develop research, teaching and leadership/management skills in addition to the competences outlined in the Foundation Programme Curriculum.

You will need to apply to the national FP vacancy and any local AFP vacancies through Oriel which can be accessed here. You will also be expected to sit the SJT along with everyone else, but your score will not be used to allocate you to an AUoA, however all AFP offers are subject to a satisfactory SJT score.

For more information on the application process please read the UKFP 2019 Applicants’ Handbook and Applicant Presentation.
