The Foundation Programme

The Foundation e-Learning Programme is a free and innovative e-learning resource for Foundation doctors.

The programme sessions map directly to the Foundation curriculum and can be found from quick links on each line of the curriculum in the e-portfolio. The material has been developed by the Academy of Medical Royal Colleges in partnership with e-Learning for Healthcare (e-LfH) and is approved by UKFPO.

The highly interactive sessions of e-learning are designed to enhance and blend with the existing teaching within Foundation Schools. The sessions use high quality graphics, video, animation and interactive exercises. 

Each session of e-learning takes around 20 minutes to complete to fit in with busy work/study schedules and can be used:

  • As a reference tool,
  • To revisit topics to refresh learning
  • As directed preparation for a formal education session and;
  • To ensure coverage of aspects of the curriculum that are not often encountered in the work place
