What we are doing
The Royal College of Physicians' (RCP's) Student and Foundation Doctor Network (SFDN) offers medical students and foundation doctors an invaluable opportunity to get actively involved with the RCP and to help shape our policy, services and activities.
The SFDN is made up of medical student and foundation doctor representatives located across the UK, plus a network chair, who act as RCP ambassadors in their regions. Its work is currently focused on three main themes:
- working lives
- career development
- local engagement and communications.
Tom Newman, SFDN chair, explains the network's purpose over the next year, with their mission statement: 'Working to inspire the next generation of clinicians by improving the training and wellbeing of student and foundation doctors, enabling them to deliver the best possible patient care.'
