Postgraduate training in Europe – Results of a European Survey

Medical education and training encompass a complex interaction between undergraduate and postgraduate training (PGT). The different ways in which residency training is organised has important variations amongst European countries.

To better understand how PGT is currently organised, regulated and delivered in different European countries the 22 full and associate members* of the European Junior Doctors Association were surveyed in late 2017. Interim results were presented to EJD delegations in May 2018 and the data collected was verifiedby the EJD delegations in June 2018 prior to this final report being published.

Statement to support the decision to reverse the erasure of Dr Hadiza Bawa-Gaba from the UK medical register

The European Junior Doctors Association (EJD) welcomes the decision to reverse the erasure of Dr Hadiza Bawa-Gaba from the UK medical register. This decision does not diminish the tragic and unexpected death of the patient involved and we continue to send our condolences to his family. The decision by the General Medical Council to erase Dr Bawa-Garba from the UK medical register shocked junior doctors across Europe.  The targeting of an individual junior doctor rather than a system that is struggling under extreme pressure has amplified the lack of trust and confidence UK doctors have in the GMC. Furthermore, this case has raised awareness across Europe of the individual liability of doctors working in environments in which wider organisational and systemic pressures may compromise patient safety.
