Even the Junior doctors are now aware of the risks of August inductions, and the national changeover of junior doctors. I remind readers of previous entries/postings. A letter in the student BMJ from Matthew Billingsley highlights the problems from the junior doctor perspective.. Its now up to commissioners to insist on staggered induction, reduced holidays during induction, and a better date for changeover (October?). This will save lives.. exactly what they are meant to do.
The transition into foundation training can be daunting. But don’t fret – Student BMJ is here for you. We have lots of advice on how to survive and thrive as a junior doctor below. Also, check out our recently published articles on COPD and applying to the academic foundation programme.
