Health Education England’s 2014 report Broadening the Foundation Programme has led to a rapid increase in the number of psychiatry placements for foundation doctors. This will have implications for existing psychiatrists in that they will start to teach, train and supervise foundation doctors. This article outlines how to develop high-quality foundation posts and how to support doctors in meeting the foundation curriculum competencies, which include experience of working in multidisciplinary teams and developing communication skills. The knowledge and skills gained in psychiatry placements will be valuable to all doctors, no matter what their future career intentions.
