Have you tried our A to Z Section?
The Oxford Foundation School is dedicated to the promotion of
high standards of patient care, whilst ensuring the continued
professional development of our foundation doctors.
We will strive to expand our range of
training opportunities, offering innovative foundation placements,
whilst remaining actively involved in the ongoing training and
development of our foundation doctors. All placements will be
designed to support, nurture and encourage the next generation of
leaders in medicine and research.
The school is committed to recruiting local
faculty who, as well as bringing their expertise, also bring
enthusiasm for the Foundation Programme.
In November 2013 we completed a thorough
review of all the rotations with a competency mapping exercise which
demonstrated that 99% of the rotations delivered the ability for
trainees to achieve all competencies. We are committed to learning
and responding to evaluation and feedback about our programme.
The Oxford Foundation School was established in 2005 to deliver
high quality integrated two year training programmes to prepare
medical graduates to enter specialty training in the NHS.
The Oxford Foundation Programme enables
medical graduates to consolidate, develop and demonstrate the
Foundation Programme Curriculum outcomes, and marry their
aspirations and abilities with service need.
Foundation doctors are matched to a two year
programme from their Foundation Programme application. Most year
one foundation programmes involve 3 x 4 month placements, and all
year two foundation programmes are 3 x 4 months. Many foundation
doctors spend part of their training in a community setting
including general practice, psychiatry, community paediatrics,
palliative care, geriatrics, rheumatology/rehabilitation, public
health and genitourinary medicine.
Working in partnership with the University
of Oxford and NHS Trusts the Oxford Foundation School also offer
24, two year, integrated academic foundation placements to enable
foundation doctors to develop research skills and explore academia
as a career.
