Quality of training is at the heart of health care, and a key component of assuring this lies in assuring the individual placements and programmes. The Recruitment of Doctors and Dentists in Training summarises good practice for postgraduate deans; it will also prove important reading for all those interested in improving the quality of junior doctors' training. Includes guidance on obtaining educational approval for posts, and on advertising the job fairly, which is an important part of ensuring equal opportunities.
