At the information session for the medicine apprenticeship, they said that you must also do your foundation post at ESNEFT. Is that possible for them to commit you to choosing there as your foundation post? Would you be unable to apply somewhere else, because I don’t see how they can 'force' you, but if someone could explain how they could, or couldn’t, please say.

Also, would your foundation post at ESNEFT affect you after you finish your foundation programme to work in London? Would you have a disadvantage or such for ST1 onwards in London?

you can do a medicine apprenticeship?
i thought you had to do a levels?!

It's a new thing, you study during normal term time with everyone else at the medical school, however during the summer, you work for around 10 weeks. You don't have to pay loans and you get paid, and you get the same qualification.

You need to have either done A-levels or an undergraduate degree/access to medicine course. You complete medical school over 5 years like normal but during non-term time you’d be working in an admin/clerical role in the NHS, whilst earning a salary and you don’t need to pay tuition fees.

It’s a new scheme so there’s very little information out there. I’m not quite sure how applications will work and if any posts are out yet :smile:
