What to expect on the day

For over ten years, the National Foundation Doctors Presentation Day has highlighted and celebrated the achievements of our UK Foundation Doctors.  The primary focus of the event is for current F1 and F2 Doctors to deliver oral and poster presentations, showcasing their work in Sustainability and Quality improvements, Case Reports, Education and Research with their peers and senior Foundation faculty, inspiring us all. The event will also include presentations from the senior Foundation faculty and the UKFPO Fellows. This year, we are delighted to be welcoming Dr Craig Holdstock as our Keynote speaker.  

The event is led by Foundation Doctors, presenting interesting work undertaken during their Foundation Programme training. We are thrilled to offer this opportunity for current Foundation Doctors to present their work at a national meeting and look forward to seeing and hearing about their contributions to medicine and to the NHS. The event provides opportunities for organisations such as the GMC, NICE, NCEPOD and more to engage with this dynamic and enthusiastic cohort of doctors at the start of their career.   

Successful applicants will be invited to present on the day, with the top 20 being selected for Oral presentations in the main programme. Oral presentations will be 10 minutes, with 8 minutes to present and 2 minutes for questions. Approximately 150 further abstracts will be selected for Poster presentations. Poster presentations are carried out in a “mini-oral” format. The audience is a much smaller group made up primarily of the other presenters in the poster group and the presentations last just 3 minutes – 2 minutes to talk through the poster to the judges and 1 minute for questions. Poster presentation groups will run concurrently with the main programme.
