The Postgraduate School of Public Health

The School of Public Health has about 60 Specialty Registrars placed in approved training locations within the West Midlands in England. The vast majority of Registrars successfully complete the programme and are appointed as Public Health consultants each year. All newly appointed registrars are allocated a ‘buddy’ who is a more experienced registrar further on in the programme.


We welcome applications from all suitable qualified candidates who wish to live and train in the vibrant and diverse region of the West Midlands.
