1. Start your application - you only need your CV!

Use our online application portal to apply to a cohort of our NHS Induction Programme.  Please ensure you have read all the information provided on this website thoroughly, before you proceed to apply. At this stage, you will only need your CV and GMC number to start your application.

Tip: Your CV should demonstrate the clinical skills and experience you have obtained through medical school, any relevant NHS work experience and your commitment self-development, teamwork and leadership abilities.

2. Send in your supplementary documents

We review all applications made to us equally and short-list successful applicants. If your application was successful, our admissions teams help you collect the necessary registration documents. This will include documents to verify you identity and right to work in the UK, criminal checks and references and occupational health checks.

Tip: These documents are the standard to work in the UK so it will be beneficial for you to start collecting them early! You can download our reference form here, and start to send it out to your referees, as this is generally the longest part of the application process.

3. Pass our programme interview

Once your documents are verified we will arrange an admissions interview with you. This interview helps us check your ID and is the last step in confirming your place on the programme. If you pass our programme interview, you will have a place on our programme and access to all of our partner NHS Trusts, training, mentoring and employment opportunities! 

Tip: We are not trying to catch you out, but we do want to ensure that you will show a level of professionalism and clinical ability inline with your expected grade. Most importantly, we want to know that you will be safe, understand your limitations and are willing to really engage and learn on the programme!

4. Get programme ready!

Once you choose the NHS Trust that you want to work at, we carry out any final checks and give you a start date! Once confirmed by the hospital will contact you to let you know, and help you prepare for your first week. You will now participate in our hands-on induction before you arrive in hospital, and this will include clinical skills training, on-call preparation and cardiac arrest simulation. We will support you throughout the entire programme and beyond!
