The Shape of Training Review proposed fundamental changes to the nature and delivery of medical training in the UK. In part this is to respond to the increasing care needs of our ageing population and importantly to address problems within the current system of medical training. Concerns have been raised by trainees over the process and outcome of the Review, and the RCPE’s Trainees & Members’ Committee has worked to ensure that the views and experiences of medical trainees from across the UK have been represented. This Perspective provides an overview of the proposals, our concerns about the process and a summary of ongoing work to address these issues.
