Foundation Programme (FP)
Academic Foundation Programme (AFP)
East Anglia does not have a separate Academic Foundation Programme but it is shared with Essex Bedfordshire and Hertfordshire (EBH). Instead, an application is made to ‘East of England’ managed by Health Education East of England. Three areas exist in the East of England: Cambridge; Norfolk and Norwich; and East of England Education.
Cambridge: F1 year in either East Anglia or EBH. F2 year in Addenbrookes (Cambridge) with a 4 month research block.
Norfolk and Norwich: F1 and F2 years in East Anglia exclusively at Norfolk and Norwich Universities Hospitals.
East of England Education: F1 and F2 in same deanery but either East Anglia or EBH. F2 year includes education component.
Vacancies, applications and competition ratios for the programmes since 2014 can be seen in these graphs. Please note that East of England Education recruitment is not reported by the UKFPO and EBH recruitment is reported separately.
