ASIT Pan-Specialty Survey

Dear Colleagues,

Several collaborating trainee doctor associations are conducting a survey to get your views on potential changes to medical training in the UK.  The survey is pan-specialty, and covers a number of topics raised in recent proposals related to the shape of training review. It should only take about 10 minutes to complete, but will help to further discussions regarding UK training.  Please do take the time to fill this out, as we can only represent trainees with your help.

The survey can be found at:


Please feel free to send this on to your colleagues, as the more views we get, the more evidence we can capture.
