Broad based training (BBT) is a new core training program designed to equip trainee doctors with skills and experience to manage increasingly complex patients at the interface between primary and secondary care . The pilot is being coordinated by the North Western Deanery and is occurring nationally in 7 deaneries including Severn.
Structure of the programme
There are four trainees in the Severn Deanery
involved in the two year program where four six month rotations in paediatrics, general practice, psychiatry and core medical training are covered. Upon completion of the programme trainees enter into one of the above specialities at CT2 or ST2 level of training in the same deanery without any further competition.

What do trainees and trainees think so far?
As two of the trainees based in Gloucestershire we surveyed the career aspirations, initial experiences and expectations of both trainees and trainers involved in the Severn Deanery. This included questions about programme organisation, the teaching and the awareness of BBT. We aim to re-survey at the middle and end of the programme to follow career aims and learn from experiences
Experiences so far
1: Poor 5: Excellent
How BBT participants are describing the programme
BBT is a new and exciting pilot training scheme. We aim to promote awareness of its merits whilst working with the education team to ensure the Severn Deanery programme continues to develop as successfully as possible.
