The European Junior Doctors Association (EJD) welcomes the proposed directive of the European Parliament and of the Council on the protection of persons reporting on breaches of Union law.

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.
