Clinical apprenticeships placement scheme (CAPS) for doctors
Refugee doctors are experienced clinicians who have often been ‘out-of-practice’ for some time. The CAPS scheme offers 6 month placements in secondary care at F2 level for GMC registered refugee doctors. These paid posts include intensive clinical education and generic skills training for doctors in their first medical post in the NHS. CAPS supports doctors to 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.
