Foundation Priority ProgrammeWatch
I'm thinking of applying to the Foundation Priority Programme and was just hoping for some advice from students who were successful/currently on an FP programme.
I was looking at some in EBH and South Thames. I have an interest in Obs and Gynae, so was looking at placements that offered this as a rotation. There are a few rotations that offer Obs and Gynae in n EBH, but have a focus/theme of GP. I'm not sure if it's worth going for this?
I'm interested because it will provide some more continuity (being at the same hospital for both years), I will find out my placement earlier on in the year. The problem is i'm not interested in GP. Will it affect/lower my chances of getting into an Obs and Gynae training programme post F2, because my FPP was largely GP focused?
Or is it worth going for it? I wasn't sure if the 'GP focus" was minimal and therefore worth going for it anyway, particularly as it's an ideal place and rotation?
Hello, just wanted to ask if you ended up applying to EBH or South Thames for FPP? I'm also interested in O G and also in those areas, cos I've had placements there and its close to home. Thanks!
If you're considering it, I'd definitely recommend to go for it - you have nothing to lose!
Lots of people seemed to apply this year, but I know of quite a few people who got an FPP offer, so definitely apply if you're interested.
