The South West offers fantastic opportunities to train as a specialist in public health, in one of the UK's most popular regions to live and work in.


Specialty Registrar Posts

Recruitment for most of our public health posts is managed nationally through an annual recruitment round. The Faculty of Public Health website provides information on this round across the UK. Applicants make a single application, expressing their preferences for specific programmes and geographical zones. Assessment and selection is standardised across several centres in the UK. The public health specialty training programme selection process uses evidence based and validated selection methodology.

Our programme is open to candidates from medical and non-medical backgrounds according to nationally agreed eligibility criteria.

Information regarding national recruitment and eligibility can be found on the Faculty of Public Health website.
