Foundation Doctor Advisory Board

Foundation Doctor Advisory Board

The purpose of the Foundation Doctor Advisory Board is to facilitate two way communication between foundation doctors and the UKFPO. This group provides information about how the Foundation Programme is being implemented locally and makes recommendations to the UKFPO for improvement. The group acts in an advisory capacity with no formal reporting structure into the UK Foundation Programme Office.

The group is made up of a F1 and a F2 doctor from each UK foundation school, with the UKFPO providing secretarial support. Meetings are held annually in October/November.
