ST2 & ST3 Specialty Posts.

Training Opportunities in Specialty Posts 

Every trainee is allocated to the East, West or South rotation, and most of your ST1 – 3 and ST4 and ST5 years will be completed within your allocated rotation.  However, there is opportunity for trainees to apply for ST2 and ST3 training posts across the Region.  Some specialty pan-regional posts are considered suitable for both ST2 and ST3 trainees, however some will remain for ST3 trainees only, these include Paediatric Intensive Care.

To ensure equality of access to specialist training opportunities, and fair distribution of trainees, you may be asked to work in a general paediatric post in a neighbouring area.  For example, a West trainee may be asked to complete a post in Harrogate or Barnsley or a South trainee to complete a post in Scunthorpe or Wakefield. If, because of your personal circumstances, you are unable to do this please let your locality Training Programme Director know with evidence for your reasons.
