The Foundation Years
PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS JOURNAL CEASED PUBLICATION IN 2009The Foundation Years journal provides up-to-date review articles on practical issues for foundation year doctors. As a bi-monthly journal, this resource constitutes part of the recommended reading for all Foundation year doctors enrolled on the Royal College of Surgeons of England distance learning programme, STEP™ (Surgical Training Education Programme) Foundation. The resource is suited to all foundation year doctors (both F1 and F2 level), reflecting the key requirements highlighted in the Foundation Programme syllabus: (i) generic skills; (ii) acute care; (iii) investigations; (iv) practical procedures, and; (v) testing yourself. The journal achieves this by providing the reader with review articles covering those key areas of the curriculum. At the end of every issue, there will be a case history quiz to test your knowledge and diagnostic skills. Each article has previously been specially commissioned and published for an existing journal: Medicine, Surgery, Anaesthesia and intensive care medicine or Psychiatry. This will enable the reader to benefit from the highest quality advice and training which specialists from across the UK are able to provide. The journal will be complementary to Medicine, which will continue to provide basic medical education in a structured format.
