National recruitment to paediatric surgery is run by Health Education Yorkshire and the Humber. Recruitment is to numbered training programmes at specialty training year 3 level, and no Locum Appointment for Training post recruitment was planned for 2014. Interviews take place in April or May. Higher surgical training in paediatric surgery is a minimum of 6 years in duration. The Applicant Handbook and Self Assessment Form guidance, both found on the Health Education Yorkshire and the Humber website, offer detailed guidance on how best to fill in the form. The self assessment form that comprises the second half of the application form will be the basis for the portfolio station at doctors’ interview. If doctors receive an invite to interview, they will need to book their time slot before the deadline. Career progression station is more similar to a traditional interview than the other stations. Academic station will address doctors’ academic experience and knowledge.
