Junior Doctors Induction

This page was last updated: March 30th, 2021

August Intake

Induction for the majority of junior medical staff takes place in July and August each year. Specialty inductions are also held at the start of each new rotation. Click on the link for Induction Dates.

On your first day of induction you will be introduced to the Postgraduate Education team at Royal Cornwall Hospital. You will be required to complete administrative and legal documentation to ensure that you are ready to start work, and to gain access to Trust IT systems.

Your induction programme will include Trust mandatory training and practical workshops on blood transfusion and basic life support. You will receive an Induction with your own Specialty on day two, and also each time you rotate to a new post.

Postgraduate Education will send you Induction details 6 weeks prior to your start date. This will include training documentation to be completed before you arrive and during your post with the Trust. It will also provide details of your training and induction programmes, and key contacts to help you settle in at Royal Cornwall Hospital NHS Trust.

Post August Intakes

If your post with Royal Cornwall Hospital commences after the August intake, Medical Staffing will ensure you receive information on your Mandatory Trust Induction date, scheduled for later in the year.
