Clinical Apprenticeship Placement Scheme (CAPS) for Refugee Doctors 

The aim of CAPS is to prepare you for specialty and improve your chances of getting a job. This scheme is endorsed by the UK Foundation Programme Office and currently delivered by Barts Health NHS Trust.

The Scheme offers 6 month placements in secondary care at F2 level to refugee doctors who are working in the NHS for the first time. These placements include intensive education and generic skills training.

You will gain a good understanding of Foundation competencies and assessment procedures as a result.

As a scheme endorsed by the UK Foundation Programme Office,  it will ensure that those who successfully complete the scheme are recognised as suitable for competing for Training Posts.

It is important that you read the Foundation Programme Guidance carefully for details of how the CAPS scheme will potentially benefit you in progressing to a Foundation post.

Applications to the Scheme are currently closed and we will post news of its availability for 2024-25 in due course.
