Induction and Working in the NHS

Doctors in Training Induction (DIT)

Doctors in Training (DiT) Induction is a national e-learning programme aimed at doctors in training (specifically F1s and F2s), returning doctors and doctors from overseas, working in primary care, secondary care and community settings.

The purpose of this programme is to ensure that doctors in training can demonstrate required levels of knowledge in key clinical areas and to reduce repetition of this training. It incorporates key relevant clinical topics which support doctors in training with the additional competencies needed as part of their induction to provide high quality patient care.

Induction for International and Returning GPs (IGP)

This is a short e-learning programme which supports the GP Induction and Refresher (I&R) Scheme and is aimed at GPs returning to work in the NHS who need an induction placement. The session provides a basic grounding of the principles and structure of the NHS, along with guidance on many aspects of the role of the modern GP, such as safeguarding, patient safety and ethics.

The Foundation e-learning programme is designed to underpin practical clinical experience and ensure the application of pre-existing knowledge in a safe manner. The e-learning sessions are mapped directly to the Foundation Professional Capabilities (Training Outcomes) in the 2016 Foundation Curriculum.

Statutory and Mandatory Training (SMT)

The Statutory and Mandatory programme covers the 11 topics in the UK Core Skills Training Framework (CSTF).
