F1 Regional Skills Teaching (F1RST)

F1RST – F1 Regional Skills Teaching

This regional resource (in development) is intended to supplement Trust or LEP (Local Education Provider) F1 Core Teaching.

All F1 doctors should attend their Trust programmes which are designed to deliver face to face teaching specifically for F1 doctors. Trust education is the backbone of F1 core learning, and includes simulation sessions which should be recorded and logged on the eportfolio. Simulation teaching can be recorded using the LEARN form.

Please see the list of 15 Core Topics in the FP Curriculum (p80) which should be covered in these programmes at F1 level.
