Welcome to the West Midlands South Foundation School.
The Foundation Programme is a 2 year programme of broad-based general training which forms the bridge between medical school and specialist/general practice training.
The West Midlands South Foundation School covers a large geographical area spreading from Hereford in the West to Nuneaton in the East. It comprises of five Trusts in two regional areas:
Hereford and Worcestershire
Coventry and Warwickshire
Each two year rotation comprises of a series of six 4 month placements in a wide variety of specialties and health care settings. All rotations include a community placement (e.g. General Practice, Psychiatry, Palliative Care). The rotations are designed to enable the doctor to experience multiple specialties, gaining the experience needed to fulfill the Foundation syllabus. The School constantly works to improve the quality of placements and actively seeks feedback from Foundation doctors for this purpose.
