Oral and maxillofacial (OMF) surgeons specialise in the diagnosis and treatment of disease affecting the mouth, jaws, face and neck. It is unique in that it requires a dual qualification in medicine and dentistry. OMF surgery has one of the best applications-to-appointment ratios of any surgical specialty in the United Kingdom at specialty training and at consultant level. The February 2014 round offered up to 20 places at specialty trainee year 3 (ST3) level and up to seven at ST1 level. The process for recruitment to ST3 has been largely unchanged for the last number of years aside from the timing of job rankings and the requirement of full General Dental Council registration at time of application. Applicants are required to provide evidence of achievement of Foundation competencies within the last 3 years in line with General Medical Council standards and Good Medical Practice.
