Broad based training (BBT)

This page contains the curricula documents for broad based training.

Broad based training is a two year core training programme designed to give doctors in training six months of experience in each of four specialties:

  • Core medical training
  • General practice
  • Paediatrics
  • and Psychiatry.

Trainees, subject to satisfactory progress, will develop a broad experience base and the potential to enter any of the four specialties to pursue their higher specialty training.

Broad based training programmes are currently only available in Scotland.
