  5. 5. Modernising Medical Careers: why? • PRHO competences not consistent • “Lost Tribes” of SHOs: some wasted time • Variable supervision at SHO level • Changing workload – EWTD • Changing disease patterns, new technologies and new drugs • Rising patient expectations • Difficulty in planning careers • Snakes and ladders of career progression

  13. 13. Lines of Responsibility DH MMC Board - includes reps from the BMA, Academy of Medical Royal Colleges, NHS SHA Deanery Programmes and Trainees
  14. 14. Learning from 2007 - DH • Criticism included – Big Bang – Rushed consultation – IT development not sufficiently controlled • Wide Consultation BUT; – Didn’t penetrate stakeholder community – Consultees didn’t take responsibility or own the product (nobody blameless: IRH) – DH didn’t hear some messages • Lessons learned from Review Group include – the need to address concerns – the power of stakeholder collective responsibility
  15. 15. “A national online application system has considerable merit and could potentially be more efficient than previous systems…..”
  16. 16. “A national online application system has considerable merit and could potentially be more efficient than previous systems…..” BGS Oct 2007
  17. 17. ?2008 • No National IT system • National Person Specs. • Local Application Form – Less ‘white space’ and more CV • Local Deanery Appointments (?interference) • Very Tight Timescale • Academic Posts • HSMPs
  18. 18. 2008 Recruitment Process • Most specialties will be local recruitment • A few will be national eg GP and Histopath • Separate Academic Recruitment • Mixture of Run-Through and Uncoupled in 2008 • Can apply for as many as want • Recruitment phase one 5th Jan to 16th May • Up to 3 recruitment exercises per year – Most ST1/2 in first exercise – ST3 spread across year depending on NTN availability
  19. 19. ?Clinical resource requirements in one deanery for 2008 recruitment • Across all specialties with 2008 recruitment, it is estimated: • 522 Consultants will be needed to shortlist 50 application forms each (assuming double scoring of 13,678 applications) • 528 days of consultant time will be needed for interviews (assuming panels of six consultants interviewing a maximum of 30 applicants per day).
  20. 20. Competition in 2008 • 2007 RT trainees will progress to ST3 – Many ST2/3 will be taken by RT • Therefore competition more severe in 2008 for remainder (numbers not totally known), – ?3:1 , can not give priority to UK trained – 5800 ST1 and 5000 coming out of FP – 2000 ST2 and 1200 FTSTA1s completing – ?900 ST3 posts with 2000 FTSTA2s completing
  21. 21. What about Run-Through? • Trainees Appointed to RT in 2007 • ST1 --> ST2 • How do we move from ST2 -->3 ?
  22. 22. Most Popular Medical Specialties and would move location • Cardiology 16% • Respiratory 10% • Gastro 10%
  23. 23. Leave London rather than accept : • Allergy • Nuclear Med • Audiology • Paediatric • Chem Path Cardiology • Oncology • Rehab. Med • Genetics • Occup. Med • GUM • GERIATRIC MEDICINE • Immunology
  24. 24. How do we move from ST2 -->3 ? • Which specialties? • Open or Closed appointment ? • Local or National appointments ?
  25. 25. Proposal for ST2-->3 for Medicine • Majority placed locally by closed appointment • 10-20% of posts put forward for „Headroom‟ • „Headroom‟ posts appointed in Open Competition – Local? – National?
  26. 26. TOOKE!! • Split Foundation • 3 year core training programmes • Uncouple Run-Through** • PMETB:GMC • Universities control postgraduate training • Set up Postgraduate Schools** • Profession to have more say**
