Foundation programme assessment tools in psychiatry

  • Asim Naeem (a1), Andrew Kent (a2) and Ajay Vijayakrishnan (a3)
Extract

In line with Modernising Medical Careers (Department of Health, 2003), the foundation year programme aims to bridge the gap between undergraduate and specialist training. Psychiatry posts have been incorporated into the second year of this programme, with satisfactory progress of doctors being monitored via a range of workplace-based assessment tools. Learning that occurs in the context of the daily workplace is more likely to be relevant and reinforced, leading to better practice (Davis et al, 1995).
