The Standardised Educational Audit Project or SEAP began as a project, in 1991, looking at how to improve the education of junior doctors who were working in hopsitals as part of their training to become general practitioners. They were working long hours, had limited contact with their future career choice of general practice and their education did not always address their future career needs. The project facilitated and collated feedback on education to encourge change
The same principles have been applied regionally and nationally. The SEAP project was previously used in the Wessex Deanery in the 2000’s to look at methods of comparative feedback. The principles have fed into the national GMC survey, since 2005, annually covering some 50,000 doctors in training in all specialties.
