Foundation Year Competencies (2020)
The Foundation Year Psychiatric Competencies project aimed to support foundation year trainees to develop their psychiatric competencies and choose careers in Psychiatry through learning opportunities and a clear ‘offer’ of training.
The project was commissioned by Health Education England, and delivered three resources to support engagement with foundation year psychiatry training opportunities:
- A Psychiatric Capabilities Framework for Foundation Year trainees
- A report mapping the Foundation Programme Syllabus against the opportunities for development through psychiatry placements
- A report detailing current practice and evidence for psychiatry training opportunities for FYs, including case studies
- A dedicated simulation training programme, Building the Foundations [HYPERLINK course page], for Foundation Year doctors and other medical trainees.
