Specialty recruitment: round 1 - acceptance and fill rate


The below table provides the latest recruitment data for training positions starting from August 2017.

The current fill rate is for round 1 only and provides a comparison to the same stage in 2016. While some specialties complete recruitment after this round, others continue to recruit and therefore the number of trainees in these areas will rise as a result of a further round of recruitment. Those specialties where this applies are psychiatry, GP, medicine, anaesthetics and emergency medicine.
