Commencing at DGT
F1 Validation Day
Foundation Year One trainees are invited to the Trust in June to attend a Validation Day. This allows new trainees the opportunity to meet Dr Toth, Training Programme Director, the Clinical Education and Medical Staffing Departments and the current F1 trainees. The pre-employment checks are carried out on this day and there is an opportunity to ask any questions or seek further information as required.
The day is valued by the new doctors since it allows them to meet and converse with their new peers.
F1 Shadowing and Induction
In line with Department of Health guidance, Foundation Year One trainees are invited to attend an extended Trust induction which includes a period of shadowing. This takes place prior to the main change-over which is the first Wednesday in August.
During this period F1s will receive their full induction, mandatory training module teaching, IT and ePortfolio Training and ILS Training. There are fixed sessions for shadowing the F1 trainee currently in post and ample opportunities to meet with the Clinical Education Department to ask any questions.
