Show Notes

Join George & Hadyn as they share their experiences of the Academic (now Specialised!) Foundation Programme, and suggest why you should consider applying. There are around 500 SFP posts available for new doctors in the UK each year which offer dedicated training in research, education or leadership and management among others. While they are competitive posts, they offer great opportunities to give you a flavour of these broader skills and to improve your CV towards higher training programme applications.
