DownloadsST3 applicants guide, 2013 R2
Welcome to the ST3 Recruitment website!
For all specialties participating in coordinated ST3 recruitment in 2014 (listed here), all information regarding the recruitment process from the very start to the very finish is included within this website.
ST3 posts within these specialties in England, Scotland & Wales will be entered into the ST3 recruitment process described on this website.
As in previous years, ST3 recruitment will be managed and coordinated by the Royal College of Physicians specialty recruitment office (RCP-SRO), in conjunction with the JRCPTB , as has been the case since 2009.
At the current time - winter 2013/2014 - specialties and deaneries/LETBs are discussing 2014 recruitment, including factors such as post vacancy numbers, interview dates, recruitment methods, etc.
As soon as this information is confirmed, we will publish it to this website. For the moment, please be aware that some information may not yet be available.

Applications for the first round of recruitment to 2014 ST3 posts will open at 10am (UK time) on Tuesday 11 February 2014; all must be submitted by 5pm (UK time) on Monday 3 March 2014.

The RCP-SRO publishes a summary applicants' guide, overviewing all areas of the recruitment/application process.
This guide can be downloaded from the left-hand side of this webpage (pdf, 814kb). The 2014 version of the guide will be published early next year; for the time being we have left the 2013 version available, for reference.
If you cannot find an answer to a question, the RCP-SRO runs an email helpdesk which can be contacted with any queries relating to ST3 recruitment.
The RCP-SRO will respond to all queries within 48 hours (excluding bank holidays and weekends), although typically responses will be sent much more quickly.
To contact the helpdesk, please send an email to email@example.com.
Any important announcements will be added to this website and noted in the news section, as well as being announced on our twitter feed; please click either the link or the twitter button (above left) to access our feed and follow us there.
