The important transition from medical school to F1 (foundation year) is likely to be stressful and high levels of anxiety have been reported among trainee doctors regarding this process. The extent to which induction training addresses the concerns facing newly qualified doctors was explored in this qualitative study. Dr Natasha Doran will outline the methodological approach to data collection and analysis, which recruited10 newly qualified doctors from across three foundation schools in the UK. The findings from semi-structured interviews will be presented along with a discussion about the implications for practice.

The varying levels of preparedness for the F1 year and differing qualitative experiences of shadowing raise important issues about the uniformity of medical training across the UK.
