Your application will be reviewed by our team and assessed to make sure that it is complete and meets our criteria.
During this process, we may seek further clarification or information from you.
An important aspect of our assessment process is the detail and quality of the statement section of your application. You must clearly set out how an ISTP placement will benefit (a) you and your professional development; (b) your home country/ hospital/ surgical colleagues; and (c) your patients.
It is also important to remember that the ISTP is a competitive programme.
There are a limited number of NHS posts available and therefore your application will be assessed, scored and ranked against a cohort of applications that we receive.
At this stage, a decision will be made as to whether your application has been scored or ranked sufficiently to be shortlisted for the interview stage.
We will contact you and let you know whether your application has been shortlisted for interview.
