As a FY1 doctor, I have to have 60 hours of logged CPD to pass ARCP and progress to FY2. That’s just the first year of being a doctor. That’s on top of working 48 hours a week (20% more than PAs). The scale of our requirements are vastly beyond those of PAs. False equivalence

UKFPO is taking all control away from medical students. First they randomise the normal FP allocation. Now they plan to randomise SFP allocation. SFP applicants work hard to apply to the regions which suit their academic interests best. This undermines all their work. Ridiculous

@SnowFake3 @CTAbdoPelvis It is not snobbery to ask for clear delineation of roles. The PA cannot directly become a surgical consultant without first becoming a doctor whereas the surgical trainee is directly training to become one. Training should prioritise the latter, which is the point of OP.

@DocDoLi @DrEilidhMaria I think this is a case of false causation. I reckon that FY1s don’t have the highest pass rate because they are FY1s but rather because only highly motivated aspiring surgeons would sit the exam so early and thus have dedicated much more to the exam. That is the case for me!

@mevparekh @JonnyGucks My fears are that FY docs rotate so frequently and the experience is so department specific. I know plenty of doctors who claim to have deskilled during their time on certain rotations. Too much time doing ward admin tasks with no educational support from seniors
