Update on 2021 specialty recruitment:
Further to the recent announcement by the four UK Statutory Education Bodies with important news about the IMT recruitment process for 2021. Interviews for round 1 of 2021 IMT recruitment have been cancelled.
The escalation of the COVID-19 pandemic has had an adverse impact on clinician availability for the physicianly specialties planned recruitment process, both for interviewers and interviewees. Therefore, the difficult decision has been made to cancel all interviews in this round and revert to the previously agreed and published contingency plan. All stakeholders agree that the revised approach is preferable to significant postponement or cancellation of the entire recruitment process that could result from a delayed decision.
