North West Thames Foundation School

Foundation Doctor


The North West Thames Foundation School (NWTFS)
is a partnership between Imperial College London and Health Education NW London, incorporating Foundation Training Programmes within linked NHS Trusts.  The Foundation Programme is a two year generic training programme designed for medical school graduates. The programme forms the bridge between medical school and specialist/general practice training.  It is designed to give Foundation Doctors a range of experience before choosing an area of medicine in which to specialise and delivers an integrated educational programme with defined outcomes.

The Foundation School co-ordinates the allocation processes to Foundation Year 1 and Foundation Year 2, and supports the delivery of Foundation Training and the development of Foundation Doctors. 

We are committed to providing high quality Foundation Training in all our linked Trusts, and together we are working within the GMC Standards for Training for the Foundation Programme. Further information on all aspects of Foundation training can be found on the UK Foundation Programme Office UKFPO website.
