Dear soon to be F1s,
Starting your first job can be a daunting experience, especially in the modern, target driven, high pressure NHS.
In order to combat this my colleagues (with the help of feedback from 100s of final year students and junior doctors over the years) have developed the only full day course specifically designed to prepare you for your first days as an F1.
This year's course will be on Saturday the 1st of August in Westminster. Just in time for a quick refresher before you formally start work.
'Surviving F1' comprises of a mixture of small group teaching, clinical scenarios, lectures and 'ask the F1' sessions to give you the experience and confidence you need to impress at the start of your careers.
We cover common clinical scenarios and areas doctors tend to stress most about as well as other key skills around handling on calls, managing your portfolios and documentation whilst always promoting a sense of fun and low stress.
We never put a learner on the spot or make anyone feel pressured.
A useful handbook is included for every attendee packed with all of the course lectures and much more.

Best wishes and good luck with your future careers,
Dr Nikhil Sharma
