Foundation Shadowing Simulation Course

CSC Logo Transparent


As a result of disruptions to training caused by the Covid-19 pandemic, new FY1 doctors may feel less comfortable in their new clinical environments compared to their predecessors. The Departments of Health in the four nations have agreed to support an extra 5 days of shadowing for FY1 trainees in 2021. This is in addition to the usual period of shadowing, to enable FY1 trainees adapt better to their new surroundings and colleagues. More information on extended shadowing can be found in the guidance below.
