Foundation Programmes

Bradford Teaching Hospitals is committed to providing newly qualified doctors with support in their Foundation year 1 and Foundation Year 2 training.  Our trainees leave with a wealth of experience and reflect on their time here positively, feeling much stronger and confident in their ability to deal with acutely unwell patients and ready to embrace speciality training.

We have very supportive Foundation Training Programme directors who are all experienced in their roles.

The Foundation Training Programme in Bradford is part of the Health Education Yorkshire and Humber Foundation School and each programme has 3 x four month placements in a variety of specialties and healthcare settings. The rotations give excellent exposure to both acute unwell and community patients. We are unique in that we offer all F2 trainees mandatory surgical and medicine training days which are very well received.
