Our response to the AoMRC's Cost of Training paper

Dr Ollie Bevington, Chair of the RCPCH Trainees Committee, responds to this report, compiled by the Academy of Medical Royal Colleges. 

“A huge amount of work has gone into developing the Cost of Training report, and it’s a useful resource.

There now needs to be further collaboration between all Medical Royal Colleges and Faculties to ensure transparency and consistency in reporting across all specialties, so that the document can truly reflect the cost of training for each discipline.

“Any Foundation Doctors considering the hugely rewarding specialty of paediatrics as their career of choice should seek further advice from the RCPCH or their Regional Trainee Representatives."
