Health Education England in the East Midlands (HEE EM) has established a governance structure centred around a series of committee meetings responsible for the operational and strategic delivery of the foundation training programme in the two foundation schools.

Foundation Oversight Board

The Foundation Oversight Board meets twice a year and is chaired by the Deputy Postgraduate Dean. The Board is focused on the strategic development of the 2 foundation schools.  Local medical school representatives representatives also attend this Board.

Foundation School board

The Foundation School Boards meet twice a year to discuss operational matters concerning the training programme; each school’s Board meetings are chaired by the relevant school’s Foundation School Director.

Trainee Representatives

Both schools ask each Trust to nominate an F1 and an F2 trainee representative; from this pool of trainees one F1 and one F2 trainee will attend the Foundation Schools Board meetings.
