Broad Based Training Programmes give trainees who may be undecided about their career pathway more time to make considered decisions about their future. It is a two-year structured programme for doctors who have successfully completed the Foundation Programme, providing six-month placements in four specialties (internal medicine, paediatrics, psychiatry, and general practice) to allow broader experience before applying for specialty training.

In 2019 a new Governance Group will be supporting the implementation of broad based training across the devolved nations.

The lead on our work on broad based training is currently being elected. It is managed by Rose Jarvis. For further information on any of our past or current work with broad based training please contact Rose Jarvis.
