Foundation Programme Application Course

Posted on
The Academic Foundation Programme is a highly competitive, but excellent opportunity to develop skills in research, teaching and leadership alongside foundation competencies. It is also a useful precursor to those thinking about research and/or Academic Clinical Fellowships (ACFs) later on.
To help maximise your chances of success, a group of current AFP trainees across the UK (including North West Thames) have put together a full-day programme. Here are the top 5 reasons why you should attend:
1) Focussed on high-yield information based on successful applicants’ experiences and insider tips
2) Structured support for answering the white-space questions, beyond generic advice and based on 3 years worth of AFP applications (and the similar format of MTAS previously)
3) Individual Feedback on your own white-space answers up to 1-week after via a dedicated post-event email link
4) Structured interview support, including stage interview panel and overview of likely clinical emergencies in clinical interview
5) Strictly not for organisers’ personal gain (Fee to help cover costs only)
