Key FP 2011 recruitment guidance published

Published: 07/06/2010

On Monday 7 June the UKFPO published information on the main recruitment round for Foundation Programme 2011. Two resources are currently available:

Foundation Applicant’s Handbook for FP 2011 (Word)

FP2011: The national recruitment process (PowerPoint presentation)

 
The Foundation Applicant’s Handbook for FP 2011 is the definitive guide to applying to the Foundation Programme. It covers such topics as:

  • The timeline & process
  • Ensuring you are eligible to apply
  • The FPAS application form
  • Guidance on references
  • Competition ratios for the past four years by foundation school
  • How applications are scored
  • What happens if there are more applicants than places available
  • Plus much more!

The PowerPoint presentation provides a broad overview of the process. This will be a useful tool for medical school and foundation school staff to use as a basis for talks with their final year students before the recruitment process begins.
