Sponsoring Board

The Shape of Training review of postgraduate medical education and training was jointly sponsored by:

Together, these organisations were called the Sponsoring Board.  

The Chair

Professor David Greenaway, Vice-Chancellor of Nottingham University, was appointed by the Shape of Training Sponsoring Board to lead the review.

Professor Greenaway chaired an Expert Advisory Group (EAG) whose aim was to help him identify issues and potential options for changes to postgraduate training.

Members of the group were selected for their independent expertise and advice rather than as representatives of their organisation.

The group had the opportunity to consider written and oral submissions from stakeholders, research evidence, site visits, feedback from focus groups and other events.
