Over the past 5 years we have had a 100% success rate in our final year medical student scholars obtaining academic foundation programme posts – except in 2018 when one scholar was put onto the reserve list for an AFP. In that year, 3 of our scholars applied to the same deanery.
This is a very high success rate, given that AFPs are very competitive and offered to only 5% of medical graduates.
We will support you throughout this application process, from advice on the programme and helping you decide where to apply, to critique on your application form and interview coaching.
You will be given very personalised free 1-2-1 mentoring support for your Academic Foundation Programme Application.
As part of your AFP application, you will be expected to complete an application form. This form contains white space questions that are relevant to the post. The President and Vice Presidents who have successfully obtained academic posts will be happy to review your application and provide you with some detailed feedback. This is an unlimited feedback opportunity, to ensure that the application you finally submit, is at its best.
