Applying to Specialty Recruitment

A series of webinars have been organised to provide Foundation doctors with the information required to assist them in applying for specialty training vacancies.

Delivered by Clare Wright, National Specialty Recruitment Manager for Health Education England, the webinars will run through the entire application process, providing data on previous recruitment rounds and some top tips on avoiding problems.  Whilst the information will relate specifically to recruitment for posts commencing in 2021, the webinars could still prove useful to those in Foundation Year 1 who wish to get an idea of what the recruitment process will entail.
