Regional Training Days


Each of the three locality schemes within Yorkshire and the Humber Foundation School delivers a series of regional training days. These training days follow the same structure across a wide range of topics. 

The aims of these training days are to provide deeper knowledge of curriculum areas, allow foundation trainees to meet outside the clinical environment and develop their wider skills as doctors.


Foundation trainees are expected to attend each of the regional training days for successful completion of their ARCP and progression to their next stage of training. 

F1: training days 1, 2, 3 & 4 

F2: training days 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 & 6
