Over 150 junior doctors and other grade doctors have joined our medical teams at East Sussex Healthcare NHS Trust.
Dr Mark Whitehead, Director of Medical Education said: “We are delighted to welcome our latest group of junior doctors and other medical grades to the Trust. Unlike previous years, many of the FY1 doctors have already had some months experience of working in hospital as they have helped to support clinical teams across the country during the Covid crisis. We wish all our new doctors every success as they progress their medical careers.”
After completing medical degrees, the next part of training as a doctor involves a two-year foundation programme – foundation year one (FY1) and foundation year two (FY2). This usually involves six different rotations or placements in medical or surgical specialties, to allow for the development of a range of clinical and non-clinical skills.
