The first-ever national strategic framework for postgraduate medical training across all medical and surgical specialties is due to be launched next Tuesday, 30 November.

 The new 10-year strategic framework, work on which has been underway since 2019, seeks to achieve greater alignment with future healthcare planning in tandem with workforce projections under the HSE’s National Doctors Training and Planning unit workforce plan.

 A strategic national framework for postgraduate medical training 2021-2030 has been led by the Forum of Postgraduate Medical Training Bodies in consultation with the 13 training bodies and the Medical Council. The strategy has been drawn up largely in response to concerns around recruitment and retention.

The strategy is intended to be patient-focused and trainee-centred, while the objectives include alignment between future health planning and training, oversight and collaboration on the ever changing technology landscape in training.
