Eligibility & Longlisting

The eligibility criteria for ST4 Emergency Medicine are listed in the Person Specification.

Please note there have been changes made to the 2023 ST4 Person Specification in the eligibility section, please refer to this section to assess your eligibility.  It is an applicant’s responsibility to demonstrate that they meet the eligibility criteria. 

Please note to be eligible for ST4 Emergency Medicine you must have completed the core elements of Emergency Medicine training by the intended start date.  Please refer to the person specification for the full list of ACCS EM core elements.  If you will not have these core elements you will be longlisted out of the ST4 EM process but you may be eligible for ST3 DRE-EM.  You must make a separate application for ST3 DRE-EM as applications cannot be transferred.

The core elements section of the application form must be answered accurately:

Have you completed or will have completed (by intended start date) a UK ACCS Emergency Medicine training programme?

You should only be answering “yes” to this question if you have completed a UK ACCS Emergency Medicine training programme or are currently in a UK ACCS Emergency Medicine Programme

If you have gained experience via another route you need to answer “no” to this question and then complete the relevant fields that appear.

Failure to complete this section correctly may result in your application being removed from the process as we will be unable to assess your experience.

All applications will be assessed against the eligibility criteria during longlisting. Any applications which do not meet the eligibility criteria will be longlisted out of the process and will not progress to the next stage.

If application numbers exceed interview capacity the self-assessment scores will be used to shortlist.

“By allowing applicants to progress to the interview stage, Health Education England HAS NOT accepted or confirmed that applicants meet all eligibility requirements.  This includes immigration status, evidence of achievement of Foundation competencies or equivalent, and requisite length of time in training as per the relevant national person specification.  This list is not exhaustive, and is applicable to all eligibility criteria.  Applicants may still be withdrawn from the application process at any stage, including after the interviews have taken place, if the evidence pertaining to an eligibility criterion is found to be unsatisfactory.”
