Public health specialty training in the East of England: training and recruitment virtual event

The Public health specialty training programme in the East of England are holding a recruitment event on Wednesday 14th October, from 6pm to 8pm. This event is being run by public health registrars from the region, training programme directors and the head of school.

We will be covering:

  • What is public health?
  • Careers and key roles in public health
  • Training and routes to practice
  • The Faculty of Public Health and their role in training
  • East of England: specialty training in our region
  • The recruitment process

There will also be a Q&A session with registrars, training programme directors and the head of school giving you the opportunity to ask questions about any aspect of training and recruitment. This session will have lots of useful information about public health as a specialty, the recruitment process and about training in our region, with insights from registrars about their experiences. This is also a great opportunity to get to know public health professionals in the region as well as other potential applicants. The session is open to anyone with an interest in public health training at any point in the future or who simply wants to know more about the specialty.

This event will take place via Zoom, details to follow on registration. To register for this event please email:

A message from Jan Yates, Head of School

Thank you for your interest in public health training in the East of England! We have a great specialty programme here with lots to offer including a mix of training locations with populations that range from the very affluent to those with significant challenges, in rural or deprived areas. In the East of England, as a public health registrar or other professional you could be working in a local authority, an acute hospital, mental or community trust, a clinical commissioning group, in private practice, in an academic institution or even with the police commissioner.

East of England also has an excellent system to support those wanting to register as public health practitioners – please see the relevant section of the website via the link above for more information.

Alongside supporting people who specialise in public health we also work with foundation doctors and other specialty registrars undertaking public health attachments and with people working as population health management fellows. If you would like more information please email us as

Thanks again for your interest and I look forward to welcoming you to the East of England!

COVID flexibilities

During the coronavirus pandemic the whole of the public health workforce has had to manage flexibly to deal with the public health needs of pandemic responsiveness. Based on national guidance and local consultation some of the school systems and processes are being amended slightly on a temporary basis to support this response. Please contact the Head of School at the email address above for further information.
