Update on recruitment plans for 2021
As the Covid 19 restrictions are expected to continue into the new year, the ISPTC /RCSI has been working on strategies to ensure there will be no diminution of the high standards that the RCSI Surgical Training Programme recruitment and selection processes has developed.
This year the selection process for both Core and Specialist Training will move online, and is in line with what is happening nationally across all Postgraduate Training Bodies. This is a stressful time for all those applying to a Surgical training programme and the team in Surgical Training are particularly cognisant of this. As we move from the application to interview stages of the process the team will be continually communicating with all those involved to reduce stress levels and make the entire process as smooth as possible.
Further updates on how the selection process will work across both Core and Specialty Training will be made available to all shortlisted candidates in Core and Specialty Training in early 2021, however, the planning is well underway at this time.
