Recruitment Process during Covid
The annual recruitment process for Surgical Training will be a completely different experience this year both for applicants and interviewers.
The Department of Surgical Affairs has amended the process to ensure that the recruitment can continue in a virtual environment while continuing to ensure that there is no diminution of standards.
The recruitment for Core Training took place on the week beginning on the 22nd of February 2021. This year we had 240 applicants. Of the applicants, 225 attended virtual interviews. These interviews involved 30 panels over 3 days and we would like to thank the 90 interviewers who gave up their time to help us complete this mammoth task.
The recruitment to Specialist training will start on the 15th of March 2021.
