Dear colleague, 

We are excited to announce the latest national collaborative audit project from the Academy of Trainee Doctors Group (ATDG) and the Association of Surgeons in Training (ASiT).
TrAIN-ME: quanTitAtive analysis of training time
The aims of the TrAIN-ME audit are to provide frontline evidence of training conditions of doctors in the UK to influence policy change and advocate for doctors across all medical and surgical specialties. We will explore staffing levels, rota compliance, junior doctors normal working day intensity, on call work intensity and current training opportunities. 

Data from the audit will be held anonymously and no identifiable information will be collected.

Why join the TrAIN-ME audit?
