There will be a national 4-day shadowing period that will take place at the end of July, the 4 weekdays prior to you commencing your foundation training in August.
You must have provisional GMC Registration in place before commencing Shadowing. The National Shadowing is a mandatory requirement for employment. Local NHS Trusts in the East Midlands have yet to confirm their 2017 start dates for their 4-day shadowing period. You will be informed of the Shadowing dates by the HEE EM Recruitment and Programmes team within your programme allocation letter.
If you are required to attend shadowing in addition to this as part of your undergraduate curriculum, you will need to liaise direct with your Medical School regarding further arrangements.
