National training surveys

The national training surveys are a core part of the work we carry out each year, to monitor and report on the quality of postgraduate medical education and training in the UK.

Each year we run the comprehensive surveys asking all doctors in training and trainers for their views. Their feedback help us make sure that doctors in training receive high quality training in a safe and effective clinical environment and trainers are well supported in their role.
