The first year's modules for Medicine on Track will explore everything from how to successfully manage your first few months as a doctor, how you make decisions, using tasters to find out about specialty options, building your portfolio and preparing for sign-off from FY1.

Foundation Year 1

To wrap up Medicine on Track for this year, we'll look back at the work we've done in self-assessment and career exploration - the first two stages in our four-part approach to career planning.
