run-through trainingA term used to describe the structure of specialty training in the UK, which was introduced in August 2007 under the Modernising Medical Careers programme, in which trainees are competitively selected into specialty training curricula covering the entire training. Once in a run-through programme, a trainee can complete specialty training in the broad-specialty group or specialty, subject to progress. In 2008, some specialties moved away from the run-through model, and now follow an uncoupled training format.
