Choosing to Train in Public Health


Public health specialty training is among the most competitive of the higher specialty training programmes in the United Kingdom. A mixed clinical specialty, public health training is open to medical, dental and other graduates, and takes between four and five years. Completion of the training scheme confers specialist registration and eligibility to undertake a range of roles including Consultant in Public Health Medicine and Consultant in Communicable Disease Control.

This Codex, written by three current UK public health specialist registrars (two medical and one non-medical), introduces readers to the discipline of public health and career prospects during training and beyond in the UK. As well as offering insights into life as a registrar, the final chapter provides a comprehensive explanation of the UK recruitment process.
