The foundation programme, also known as «FP» is the beginning of the long end to your medical studies and usually takes place over the course of 2 years. Upon completion of the foundation programme, prospective medical doctors will then go on to choose their field, or fields, of specialty training.
The FP should not only serve to prepare medical students for future responsibilities, rather it should also deepen and reinforce the knowledge obtained during their general studies.
During the foundation programme, medical students will undertake various responsibilities and jobs. Among these responsibilities, students will be expected to gain a practical understanding of anemnesis, capillary and venous blood drawing, execution of subcutaneous and intramuscular injections, intravenous application of medicines and treatment of benign wounds. Furthermore, medical students may serve as a second or third pair of hands during an operation.
For the foundation programme, medical students require various diagnostic instruments, as well as professional wear and other aids.
In this themed category, we have assorted a selection of the most important items to help students in their FP achieve their goals and improve their skills. Furthermore, you will find many helpful anatomical models, which are great for practising various skill sets, such as venipuncture or wound closure with surgical suture.
