FY1

UK shorthand for the first year of a doctor’s training in an NHS teaching hospital after graduation from medical school, which is equivalent to the former pre-registration house officer (PRHO). FY1s have structured curricula with periodic assessments based on the GMC’s New Doctor document. Success in the FY1 year leads to full registration with the GMC and progression to FY2.
