The Postgraduate School of Public Health

The School of Public Health has about 60 Specialty Registrars (StRs) 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.

Recruitment into public health follows a nationally standardised process which is coordinated through the East Midlands Health Education England recruitment team with local input at HEE level.  If you have queries about eligibility and the recruitment process please email publichealthrecruitment.em@hee.nhs.uk

Candidates for Aug 2023 entry in the final stages of the national recruitment process will need to select and rank only those zones in which they are happy to train in – there will be occasions when being physically present is required albeit varying working arrangements include hybrid/remote working.  Ie if applicants know a certain zone or zones  are not possible for them for geographical reasons then they should not chose or rank that zone. There are 5 zones :    

- Herefordshire & Worcestershire

- Black Country

- Shropshire & Staffordshire

- Birmingham & Solihull

- Coventry & Warwickshire.


For any queries about training in the West Midlands please contact publichealthtraining.wm@hee.nhs.uk
