Renewal of Malta Foundation Programme affiliation to UK Foundation Programme
On 20th March 2018, Professor Russel Smith Post-graduate Dean and Co-Chair, Health Education England, in a letter to Malta Foundation School Directors Professor Kevin Cassar and Dr Tonio Piscopo, communicated that "The Four UK Health Departments have agreed to extend recognition of the Malta Foundation School for the purpose of entry into specialty training until September 2022".
The agreement reiterated the conditions which had been established from the start ie that the Malta Foundation School continues to work closely with the United Kingdom Foundation Programme Office and that the Programme continues to be quality assured by the Malta Medical Council.
In their reply dated 4th April 2018, the Malta Foundation School Directors expressed their delight at the decision by Health Education England, and assured their committment to ensure that the Malta Foundation Programme continues to meet the established conditions.
