Academic Foundation

The Academic Foundation Programme (AFP) provides an alternative to regular two year Foundation Programme. The AFP offers doctors the opportunity to undertake clinical jobs combined with a research interest of their choice. This programme is specifically designed in order to help doctors develop research, teaching and leadership/ management skills in addition to the basic clinical knowledge and skills that are required of a junior doctor. The AFP is open to all Foundation Programme applicants but may be especially suited to those with an interest in research, or those who envisage themselves pursuing an academic medical career.
