The national foundation programme application process is open to UK graduates, EU graduates and international graduates who have the right to work in the UK.
It is recognised that graduates undertaking their first post in the UK may have difficulty adjusting to the UK health system, which can carry patient safety issues. Because of this, shadowing and introduction to the UK health system is augmented in the STFS affiliated trusts by an extended induction programme.
Extended induction allows the non-UK graduate trainees to have an extended shadowing period with the trusts. Trainees are also invited to participate in a two day course: 'Induction for Foundation Doctors New to the NHS' provided by North West London HEE.
