2013 ST3 recruitment
Round 1 - closed
The first round of recruitment to 2013 ST3 posts is now complete.
The application deadline for the second round of recruitment to ST3 posts has now passed, as of 1pm on Wednesday 4 September 2013. No more applications can be accepted during this round.
For details on the full round 2 timeline, please visit the recruitment timeline page of the ST3 recruitment website.
In round 2, recruitment to each specialty is being organised on a national basis; ie a candidate just submits an application for a specialty, without having to specify preferred deaneries/LETBs at that stage. Preferences will be given around the time of interview.
Two additional specialties have joined the RCP-SRO ST3 recruitment process for 2013 round 2 - allergy and immunology. For more details, please see the specialties page of the ST3 recruitment website.
As noted, no cardiology vacancies have been entered into round 2; any additional cardiology recruitment prior to 2014 will be carried out locally. See deanery websites and www.jobs.nhs.uk for more information.
Elsewhere on the ST3 recruitment website can be found more information on recruitment in round 2; this will be expanded and updated nearer the opening of round 2. Please visit the future recruitment page of the website for information.
Information on 2014 ST3 recruitment is not yet confirmed, but will be published to www.st3recruitment.org.uk as and when this is available.
In the meantime, the existing information on the website - specific to 2013 recruitment - can be used as a guide for next year, as much of the guidance given will still be applicable for 2014.
For information on applying to ST3, plus details of eligibility criteria, participating deaneries and specialties, the application form, interviews, offers, FAQs, and all other ST3 recruitment information, please visit the ST3 recruitment website.
