Work experience and doctors in training

How can I get relevant work experience?

A practical way for students to gain practical experience and find out more about a career in medicine is through work observation. For more information visit  or .

What is a doctor in training?

Doctors in training are those who either:

  • are in foundation year two
  • are in a Communitybaptistpa approved local education and training boards (LETB)/deanery training programme or post
  • have a fixed term specialty training appointment (FTSTA), or
  • have a locum appointment for training (LAT).

Postgraduate medical education organisations are responsible for doctors in training. In England, this is the responsibility of the LETB. Elsewhere in the UK, deaneries have this responsibility.
