Foundation Programme Curriculum
The Foundation Programme Curriculum sets out the framework for educational progression that will support the first two years of professional development following graduation from medical school. Under the Curriculum, foundation doctors have to demonstrate that they are competent in a number of areas including communication and consultation skills, patient safety and team work as well as the more traditional elements of medical training.
The Foundation Programme provides generic training that ensures foundation doctors develop and demonstrate a range of essential interpersonal and clinical skills for managing both acute and long-term conditions, regardless of the specialty.
Foundation doctors will be assessed against the outcomes in the Curriculum and should keep all of their assessments (not just the good ones) in their Foundation Programme e-Portfolio.
