National Paediatric Surgery ST3 Recruitment
The national Recruitment Office for ST3 Paediatric Surgery is Health Education England - Yorkshire and the Humber. We are recruiting to posts across the United Kingdom. All posts have the required educational and Dean’s approval.
Higher Training in Paediatric Surgery aims to provide comprehensive and enjoyable training in all aspects of Paediatric Surgery including neonatal surgery, general paediatric surgery, paediatric urology and paediatric trauma. Opportunities for research and overseas experience will be accommodated wherever possible and appropriate.
Training centres in Paediatric Surgery have been organised into regional consortia which are able to provide broad exposure to Paediatric Surgery. If appointed, trainees will be required to train in a number of locations within the consortium.
A brief summary of the recruitment process is provided below, but please refer to the Applicant Handbook for a full guide.
** Please note ACF trainees appointed at Core Training Level do not need to be rebenchmarked when then they reach ST3, they simply 'run through' their training**
