The stated aim of the new Foundation Programme is to equip all doctors with a range of generic competencies before they embark on a specialist training programme, following the advice in Modernising Medical Careers (Department of Health, 2003, 2004), which built upon Unfinished Business, Proposals for the Reform of the Senior House Officer Grade (Department of Health, 2002). The educational aims of this 2-year programme are to develop generic skills, competencies and attitudes to ensure professional conduct that will reflect ‘good medical practice’ as defined by the General Medical Council (1998). Any education for the Foundation Programme must concentrate on these areas. A Curriculum for the Foundation Years in Postgraduate Education and Training is being produced by the Academy of Medical Royal Colleges in co-operation with the Modernising Medical Careers Implementation Team at the Department of Health (Department of Health, 2005).
