A warm welcome to Foundation doctors from the elearning for healthcare hub

Posted on: August 7th, 2023 by Kieron Bradshaw No Comments

As we welcome Foundation doctors to the new academic year, we are pleased to advise that first and second year trainees are able to access the official Foundation elearning programme via NHS England’s elearning for healthcare (elfh) hub.

The elearning programme covers the entire foundation curriculum and will provide evidence of a colleague’s learning to the General Medical Council, as well as being recorded in their ePortfolio.

Completing sessions early will help colleagues get more out of their attachments in the Foundation years, and the elearning will also help them to cover parts of the curriculum that they may otherwise not encounter.

May we take this opportunity to warmly welcome colleagues to the Foundation programme, and we hope that you enjoy using these training resources.

Accessing the elearning

All Foundation doctors have been automatically registered on the elearning and can access it at by clicking the ‘Log in to your elearning’ button in the top right hand corner of the page. Colleagues will need to link their ePortfolio to their elfh elearning activity and should refer to the email they have been sent from the elfh Registration Team for information on how to do this.

For more information on how to log in, access your elearning and technical checks, please visit elfh’s support pages.

Doctors in Training Induction programme updated

Posted on: July 13th, 2022 by Kieron Bradshaw No Comments

The Doctors in Training (DiT) Induction elearning programme has been reviewed and updated by subject specialists ahead of the new academic year.

Following feedback from practising clinical staff as well as doctors currently in training, sessions from the programme have been updated to improve the experience for learners.

DiT is aimed at foundation doctors (F1 and F2) and focuses on professional skills in the workplace through 3 patient journey scenarios, along with an assessment to confirm compliance.

It addresses some identified gaps in knowledge for doctors prior to starting their next year on 1 August.

It is also suitable for returning doctors and doctors from overseas working in primary care, secondary care and community settings.

The 3 patient journey scenarios are based around areas that doctors in training have highlighted as those they find most challenging. They include:

  • Blood transfusion and consent
  • Safe prescribing and venous thromboembolism (VTE)
  • Mental Capacity Act and death certification

The learning objectives for this programme have been specially written by experts:

More information, including access details, is available on the Doctors in Training Induction page.
