Junior Doctor Induction

Arrow In this section

We run a full day Induction programme designed specifically for Junior Doctors twice a year – February and August. The programme is presented by a mixture of clinical and non clinical speakers and each is an expert in their chosen topic. Due to the current COVID-19 situation, we are currently unable to hold face to face induction however we will be running a full day induction across Zoom, Vimeo & E-LFH.

You should receive your IT access from the Medical Workforce team the day before induction. ID badges will be distributed to you by your rota coordinator.
