Broadening the Foundation Programme

24 Oct 2014

The Broadening the Foundation Programme addresses the need for our newly qualified doctors to be able to respond to the evolving needs of the ‘whole patient’ and to be able to develop their capabilities across a range of settings, including the community. This has required all foundation schools to alter their programmes in order to include more Psychiatry and community posts.

These changes will start to come into effect from August 2015.

For further information please visit the BTFP page on the HEE website which also has a link to the full report. To find out how these changes may affect you and your prospective programme, please see the Broadening FAQs. If you have any further questions please contact
