Re-application to Specialty
Specialty training posts and programmes are not normally available to any doctor whom has previously relinquished or been removed from that training post/programme.
When applying for a post the declaration section of the application form will ask the applicant if they have previously relinquished or been released or removed from a training programme for the specialty to which they are applying.
If the applicant answers yes to this question they will need to provide full details of the resignation/release/removal from a training programme to the recruiting organisation by email at the point of application. This should be provided on the Support for Reapplication to a Specialty Training Programme form, approved by both the Head of School/Training Programme Director and Postgraduate Dean in the region where training was previously undertaken. A list of appropriate signatories is available.
The Support for Reapplication to a Specialty Training Programme form should be uploaded and submitted at time of application. It can also be submitted to a given confidential email address, if requested, after application submission.
Trainees currently working in the specialty, applying to continue their training in another region, without a break in service will be required to submit a Support for Reapplication of Specialty Training in a Different Region form.
Research will continue to be a feature of the person specifications for all levels. This is to ensure that if you have made the career choice to undertake research, you are not disadvantaged.
Doctors in specialty training can also take 'time out' to undertake research, but this should be in order to pursue a formal research qualification (e.g. MD or PhD). If you are considering an academic research career, you should seek advice from your postgraduate dean.
