If you are looking to apply to an ST3 level programme in one of the medical specialties coordinated by the JRCPTB recruitment process, this website contains detailed information to help you. This covers recruitment to UK training programmes in these specialties in England, Soctland and Wales, and also Northern Ireland for clinical genetics, medical oncology and palliative medicine.
The process section of the website is the home to the majority of general information to help you navigate a recruitment round, including: timeline, eligibility criteria, planning your application, applying, interviews and offers. For specialty specific information such as interview dates and post numbers, interview format and data from previous years, please visit the relevant specialty's page.
In addition to the website, we have produced an 'Applicants' Guide' which overviews how the process works and is a good introduction for those new to specialty recruitment. This is available to download from the document library.
It is advisable to view the relevant person specification for the specialty(ies) to which you are intending to apply.
You may also wish to view competition ratios and scoring from previous rounds, which is available under the 'data' tab within the relevant specialty's page.
