Changes to training in medicine and psychiatry: a trainee's perspective on a possible way forward

  • Raja A. S. Mukherjee (a1) and S. Rao Nimmagadda (a2)
Extract

The next 2 years will see radical changes to the way medical training is delivered. First, the old apprenticeship and time served model will no longer be applicable. Second, from August 2004 the European Work Time Directive (EWTD) applies to trainees in the same way that it applies to all other grades (European Union, 1993, 2000). August 2005 will bring the first full intake into foundation programmes and will see the implementation of Modernising Medical Careers (MMC) (Department of Health, 2003). Further in 2005, the General Medical Council's (GMC's) new requirements for revalidation will come into force (GMC, 2003).
