Progression reports

Update in progress

Our progression reports are unavailable while under redevelopment. If you'd like to access any of the information within these reports, please contact us at

As part of our quality assurance activity we collect and report on the progression of doctors through key stages in their training such as specialty examinations, annual review of competence progression and their application and entry into further training. We report this by training organisation and by doctors personal characteristics.

We also look at how prepared first year foundation doctors feel to enter training and the specialties in which they ultimately complete their certificate of completion of training.

Reports are published on our website to enable organisations working to deliver and quality assure medical education and training across the UK, to identify and investigate trends or variations as part of their quality management work.
