DownloadsST3 applicants guide, 2014 R1 v2.0
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, specialties and deaneries/LETBs are discussing 2014 recruitment, including factors such as vacancy numbers, interview dates, recruitment methods, etc.
As this information is confirmed, we will publish it to this website.

The RCP-SRO will respond to all queries within two working days (ie excluding bank holidays and weekends), although typically, responses will be sent much more quickly.
