IMPORTANT INFORMATION RE SEVERN DEANERY JOB FAIR ON 7 MARCH.
THIS EVENT IS STILL GOING AHEAD
Welcome to the Foundation Programme page at the University
Hospitals Bristol. This page aims to provide you with information
about our programme and what you might expect training as a
Foundation doctor with us.
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 of you will spend the full two
years here at UH Bristol and others will move to other Trusts
within the Severn Deanery depending on which programme you have
been successfully appointed to. Each foundation year (F1 or
F2) is divided in to three placements and provide you with a safe
environment to practicS what you have already learnt, while
developing additional skills, knowledge and experience needed to
begin speciality training.
For more infomation on the F1 and F2 posts we have at
University Hospitals Bristol NHS Foundation Trust, you can

pages (for F1 posts on page 2 and F2 posts on page 40)
