Hi everyone, I'm a final yr student and have always had an interest in public health and was wondering if anyone had any experience of a public health FY rotation. There's not much info out there (correct me if I'm wrong ) and I'm particularly interested in any within the South Thames deanery. Thank you so much in advance!

Oxford have a large public health/international health department and offer FY posts.

It sounded really good - basically doing public health projects for 4 months, whilst sitting in on their meetings and getting some experience.

The only trouble is: how competitive it is to get into public health afterwards!

If you have an interest in public health I would highly recommend a placement in it in Foundation, or if you can't get one, a taster week. Public health is so different from clinical medicine, and working in public health is very different from studying it (I am a dual public health and GP trainee). Many parts of the country have F2 rotations. This is a great summary of someone's experience as an F2 in public health: https://heeoe.hee.nhs.uk/sites/defau...ment_in_f2.pdf

Hi - does anyone have any experience of doing PH in Central + East London/South Thames? Also is it possible to get involved in research during the placement or is mostly practical things (e.g. making reports, etc)?

wow I didn't realise it was so competitive actually getting in, thanks for the heads up! I guess a placement is a good step in the right direction!

great, thank you! Have you found your training in public has not met/met or even exceeded your expectations when you were more junior?
