The Academic Specialised Foundation Programme at Oxford
OUGSG regularly hosts and provides supervisors for Oxford Academic Specialised Foundation Programme doctors for their Year 2 research placement, which may be taken either as a dedicated four-month academic block or with a different time allocation/distribution depending on the post.
You can find out more and apply on the Oxford University Clinical Academic Graduate School website.
