Unprecedented vacancies for foundation year training following junior doctor dispute

There are 300 vacancies for F1 training posts in England this year after they were oversubscribed in 2014 and 2015, which doctors’ leaders have blamed on the ongoing dispute over the junior doctor contracts.

Health Education England is advertising 300 places for Foundation Year training beginning in July, which were unfilled by graduates from English medical schools.

In the previous two years F1 places were filled in the national recruitment round in March and were even oversubscribed.
