Description:

In the UK to become an Ophthalmologist you need to have completed medical school and 2 years of general foundation junior doctor jobs. During or after the second year of foundation jobs you apply for Ophthalmology training. The process is nationalised, in that you apply through one online application system for the whole UK (England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland). Sim has recently been through the process and explains what you need to do to apply. Summary time line for OST application (times may vary year on year please check the recruitment/royal college websites): Applications open in November for a few weeks. Once you are notified, you should undertake the specialty recruitment assessment in January. A couple weeks later you find out whether your have qualified for an interview. You then pick the appropriate interview time and date. The about a week later rank all the jobs (location and rotation) in the UK. 1-2 weeks after the interview you will be informed about whether you have been offered a job or not via the online portal. Options are given to accept or reject jobs.
