Tasters provide an opportunity to experience a specialty not included in trainees’ two year Foundation Programme, and thereby develop ideas and understanding of that specialty and inform career choices. Tasters can also benefit those who have already made career decisions as it suggests to employers that they are dedicated and committed to their chosen specialty. We encourage all trainees to arrange a taster during their first F2 rotation so that they have completed it in advance of the recruitment process to specialty training programmes which usually commences in November of the F2 year. 

Trainees are advised to contact their FP Administrator for details of tasters available at their trust.
