As a result of an error affecting the ranking of ST3 medical training posts, recent clinical oncology trainee offers were withdrawn yesterday (May 4). The Royal College of Physicians has assured candidates that they will be reissued by 14 May. This does not affect clinical oncology applicants' appointability in the recent round of national recruitment.
All applicants have received a communication from the HEE London and South East Recruitment team which explains the issue, what will happen next and what they need to do. The RCR does not anticipate this incident to have a significant impact on ST3 allocation.
Please reassure all new potential ST3 clinical oncology trainees. Further information is available via a detailed statement from The Royal College of Physicians.
