New Multiprofessional Foundation School! :


We are really excited to announce the launch of the multiprofessional foundation school in this Autumn term 2022! we are linking with the foundation schools in dentistry, pharmacy and Physicans Associates to offer joint learning opportunities. 


We have a thriving and innovative medical foundation school in the East of England. This school has adapted to technology enhanced learning, been innovative in the types of learning opportunities provided, and with the year trial has successfully embedded some multiprofessional teaching with PA which can now be expanded.

This is opportunity to be creative and support the development of multiprofessional learning and adoption of shared culture within our earliest post graduate years, and their educational faculty.

This is a unique national offer. It is innovative and aligns well with the ideals and aspirations of NHSE. There is significant national interest in the practicalities and the results of this endeavour. 

Welcoming our new F1 

We are proud to welcome trainees into the EoE, and hope that you really enjoy your time with us. We run a regional welcome to our foundation school series of workshops in June & July for those that are joining in August, and based on feedback from previous years we have asked our trusts to also organise local remote welcomes for questions and getting ready to start.
