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 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.
If you are thinking of joining us here it is important to note a few things about the programme. We are proud to work with the University of Cambridge to deliver your core scientific training in the first year. The Mphil programme which is delivered on the Addenbrookes Hospital site is the only academic programme of study we allow our registrars to undertake; no other programme or University is possible.
Secondly, please do look at the geography of the region and consider your personal circumstances and ability to travel. We have some great opportunities for registrars across the region all the way from North Norfolk to Hertfordshire, Great Yarmouth, Luton or Bedfordshire and you must be prepared to travel for at least some of your placements. We have two zones - North (Norfolk, Suffolk, Cambridgeshire, Luton, Beds) and South (Herts and Essex). On appointment to one zone you will not be required to travel outside of that zone, but there are still reasonable distances involved.
Please consider carefully your choice of programme, especially if you are based in or near London and do not intend to relocate. Transfers to other programmes are rare, and we need to be able to maximise your learning opportunities wherever they occur in your zone.
Thanks again for your interest and I look forward to welcoming you to the East of England!
