Training Programmes

Training Programmes are run in all parts of the UK, in demarcated geographical areas overseen by a Postgraduate Dean (PGD) - often known as “deaneries”. The delivery of public health training is overseen by a Head of School (HoS) and/or a Training Programme Director (TPD) reporting to the PGD.

Training placements will usually be within one deanery but may be across deaneries in special circumstances. Please see the Out of Programme page for further details. Registrars will usually complete all their training within one deanery but may move in exceptional circumstances (see Interdeanery Transfers below).

Inter-Deanery Transfer (IDT)

The National Inter-Deanery Transfer (IDT) process has been put in place to support registrars who have had an unforeseen and significant change in circumstances since commencement of their current training programme. The process is managed by the National IDT team (Health Education South London) on behalf of the Conference of Postgraduate Medical Deans (COPMeD), Health Education England (HEE) and all UK regions. If you are planning to apply for an IDT process, please visit the website for guidance.
