CAT Induction

Information regarding the annual Clinical Academic Training Induction

All Clinical Academic Training Programme trainees are invited to attend an induction in September of each academic year.  The induction is arranged by Health Education across the East Midlands.


An induction session for new north and south academic trainees (FY1, FY2, ACF and ACL) is normally held each September in either Nottingham or Leicester (rotates between the two alternate years). It is mandatory for all new clinical academic trainees to attend the induction day and you should obtain study leave from your Junior Doctor Administrator if you are programmed to undertake clinical work, in order to facilitate this. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic the induction is to be held virtually on Microsoft Teams in 2020.

If you have any issues, please contact Academic Foundation Programme Director, Dr Robert Powell, and Head of the Postgraduate Specialty School of Clinical Academic Training, Professor Jonathan Barratt
