    Hi everyone,

    I was am wondering about what happens after your foundation year, basically do you apply to a specialty programme and then follow a defined path and eventually reach consultant, subject to exams and job availability or do you have to continously reapply to each specialty year?

    I have heard about Deanery's but have also heard a rumour that these are being abolished?

    Thanks in advance.

    It depends what specialty you go into. Have a look through this guide here http://www.mmc.nhs.uk/pdf/QuickGuide...CTIVEsmall.pdf - page 13 shows you which specialties have completely run-through training and which have "uncoupled" training where you do two or three years of core training and then reapply for ST3 or 4. It also explains a bit about the different recruitment processes - which ones are centrally organised or which are done by deaneries.

    Is the whole coupled/uncoupled thing not deanery-dependent? As in, I know of five deaneries offering run-through Orthopaedics, but the rest are uncoupled... That was last year though. :dontknow:

    I think it's only for orthopaedics that that happens, for most of the rest it's the same nationally though recruitment methods themselves may vary.

    Thanks, that is really helpful.
