time-cappingThe limiting of the amount of time that a doctor trainee in the UK can spend at a particular level. Sir Liam Donaldson’s report, Unfinished Business, specifies that all the training programmes will be time-capped, but still be flexible enough to reflect the needs of those training part-time or whose training is interrupted. It advocates time-capping as “an inherent part of sound programme management”, enabling trainees to move through appropriate programmes and to make decisions about their future career directions.
