Doctors in Training Online Generic Induction (DITOGI)

DITOGI 2017 e-induction provides a modular programme of generic topics enabling doctors in training to carry out safe and effective practice. It has been designed to be less time-consuming and repetitive than some traditional face-to-face training.

Revised and updated for doctors entering training in the West Midlands in 2017, it provides a standardised induction and assessment of doctors’ knowledge. Including topics such as infection control, child protection, fire safety and manual handling, the programme has been developed with the support of the region’s three medical schools at Warwick, Keele and Birmingham universities.

Trusts are not required to repeat induction on generic topics, enabling them to focus on local training requirements and departmental inductions in a cost-effective programme that both enhances doctors’ training and increases patient safety. Generic induction is an effective medium for communicating the vision, ethos and values of the NHS and is used by many commercial organisations to promote their brand and customer service values.

This 18 module programme is structured to allow doctors in training to complete modules and be assessed on their learning before they start their employment at trusts.

Please note that doctors in training who are required to complete DITOGI 2017 will be registered onto the appropriate e-learning platform by Health Education England, West Midlands (HEE WM).

Communications will be sent providing login and registration information in June 2017 to all trainees who have been registered.

West Midlands Doctors in Training On-line Generic Induction (DITOGI) 2017 is being delivered on Health Education England (HEE) e-Learning for Health (e-LfH). Those trainee doctors who are required to do DITOGI received direct communication with further details in June 2017.
