What is the Foundation Programme?

Updated: Jul 11, 2021





Before we start to explain the academic foundation programme, it's first important to get a grasp on what the normal Foundation Programme is and how it works.


There are 20 foundation schools as listed above. A foundation school is a geographical area which includes a number of NHS trusts/hospitals. When you proceed with the normal Foundation programme application, you will select and rank all of these 20 foundation schools, before you find out your overall FPAS score (EPM/SJT)


The foundation programme is split into 6 clinical rotations across foundation year 1 & 2. See an example below:


FY1: Gastro, Geriatric Medicine, Urology, FY2: ED, Gen Surg, GP


The objective of the FP is to give you a rounded experience of hospital medicine & surgery, and community care. These rotations will be full time and you will be expected to meet the UKFPO requirements for the ARCP by the end of F1 & F2.
