Professional Practice for Foundation Doctors

Edited by:


July 2011 | 328 pages | Learning Matters
This book is designed to support trainee doctors during the Foundation Stage of postgraduate training, including preparation and application for Specialty Training posts, and covers the generic (non-clinical) aspects of postgraduate education, training and professional development. It shows trainees how the 'generic skills' fit into professional practice and development and how the knowledge base provided by the book underpins professional practice.

The book will assist the development of the knowledge, skills and competences required for good medical practice and uses case studies, activities and policy examples to illustrate key learning points.

Introduction: Generic Aspects of Professional Practice for Foundation Stage and Specialty Doctors

I would recommend this text for use by final year students so that they can begin to use this in their assistant ship period. I think that it is a useful aid memoire and quick reference book which will help build confidence and competence in their early years.

I liked the way this book integrated non technical skills with knowledge and addresseda wide range of subjects. Foundation Stage competencies are addressed.
