Foundation programme

Information from Severn Postgraduate Medical Education can be found here:

This page aims to provide you with an overview of the Foundation Programme here at University Hospitals Bristol NHS Foundation Trust.

Foundation Year 1 and 2 Placements

The Foundation programme was introduced in 2005 as a stepping stone from medical school to speciality/GP training and consists of a coupled two-year programme. Some programmes consist of two years here at UH Bristol while others are "uncoupled" and consist of placements in two different Trusts.

Each foundation year (FY1 and FY2) is divided into three placements and provides you with a safe environment to practise what you have already learned at medical school, while developing the additional skills, knowledge and experience needed to begin speciality training. 

For more infomation on the FY1 and FY2 posts we  have at University Hospitals Bristol NHS Foundation Trust, you can click on the following link. There are two contents pages (for F1 posts on page 2 and F2 posts on page 40) which should allow you to easily browse though this document. 

UH Bristol Foundation Posts

 You can also download the attached "Why UH Bristol?" leaflet which will give you a bit more information about working at the Trust and about Bristol as a city to live and work in. It also provides details of the 2015/16 Foundation Programme Rotations.

Why UH Bristol?

F1 Education Programme

The UH Bristol Foundation Programme Associate Directors, Dr Jim Portal and Dr Emma-Kate Reed, will ensure you have the necessary access to a formal taught programme of education which addresses the professional elements of the Curriculum.  The education programme currently runs every Wednesday from 12:30 - 13:30 and is managed by the team in the Postgraduate Medical Education (PGME) Centre (opposite the main Bristol Royal Infirmary hospital). This is a one hour "protected time" teaching (we look after your bleeps!)
