Current NHS trainees are full-time employees of the health service and have annual leave and other benefits in line with usual NHS entitlements. On entry to the programme current NHS trainees are paid on the first spine point of Band 6 of the Agenda for Change pay scales. Please see the NHS Careers website for information on current salaries and conditions of service. For current NHS trainees travel expenses for travelling on placement, conduct of research and travel to teaching days at the UEA are reimbursed in accordance with NHS terms and conditions of service.
We had 22 funded places in 2016 and anticipate 16 – 22 funded places for 2017. We normally interview up to 90 applicants although this may change based on the number of places that are commissioned.
Candidates for 2017 entry should check for funding updates on the Clearing House Funding page.
For 2017 we will consider a small number of self-funded international applicants who can secure financial support throughout the duration of training on the Programme.
