When a registrar starts on the programme they are allocated a training base. An appropriate approved Educational Supervisor will support them during the training in placement. The usual pattern of training is that a registrar starts in a twelve month local authority placement working around MSc study patterns if needed.
There is then a mandatory three to four month placement in Public Health England Health Protection. Registrars join the on-call Health Protection rota after this placement having passed a local Health Protection assessment and the Faculty of Public Health Diplomate examination.
After passing the Part B examination a limited number of national locations give the chance to gain experience which cannot be gained within Wessex. Examples of this include: National Public Health England locations, Global Health and Department for International Development. These are tailored to individual registrars’ needs.
