Foundation Programme (UKFP)

You MUST apply for Foundation Programme (FP) before applying to Psychiatry Foundation Fellowship (PFF) or Foundation Priority Programme (FPP)

The Foundation Programme is a two-year, work-based training programme which bridges the gap between medical school and specialty / general practice training. The foundation programme is part of the continuum of medical education. It ensures that newly qualified doctors develop their clinical and professional skills in the workplace in readiness for core, specialty or general practice training. The Foundation Programme aims to ensure that all doctors deliver safe and effective patient care and aspire to excellence in their professional development in accordance with GMC guidance.

Applications for foundation training are to a generic programme. Rotations are designed to ensure all foundation doctors undergo a balanced programme which enables them to meet the competences and outcomes set by the GMC as described in the Curriculum.
