I still haven't heard a thing from them.. am I the only one out there?

I agree, it was tough tough. Quite a selective process.

My understanding though was the jobs were 3?

In any case...

fingers crossed.

OK,, some news, I got offered a LAT by east midlands. Very likely to turn it down as i already am doing a 12 months LAT. My understanding is that only one year can be counted towards CCT?

Anyone has different news on that?

BTW Yes there were only 2 substantive posts. And HR confirms that very unlikely that they will have any more ST4 vacancies in a good while thanks to posts being held for ST3s (and next year's ST3s and the one after...) Do we really all want to wait 3 years doing locums and stuff?

WTF?

Hi Icon,

unfortunately we are bound to confidentiality about interview in details.. I guess we can say simply that the panels were many (5!) each considering different aspects, the usual ones - clinical, portfolio review, research and teaching - plus the audit presentation and a group exercise. Don't ask me more on that, let's say it was sort of fun!

Ah, and the case scenario came complete with actress.

Good Luck in 3 year's time when new ST4 jobs will finally be advertised.

Hi carlo.. congrats on getting the offer.. no luck for me I'm afraid..

It was a shock to see the competition man.. more than 12 chaps battling it out for 2 substantive ST4 posts..

I've more or less given up hope now.. have began to hunt for staff grade jobs now.

mad max, my fellow! We'll be fine I'm sure before 2018 ;)

Actually this particular offer will be declined by mad me. These days one must be mad to give up a ST4 - even if LAT - offer in favour of a CT3. If that're true, then I must be Sectionable. See you in London some time. I heard the Maudsley is a decent place.

Dear All, :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: [smiley=engel017.gif]

same story here. I got 2 LAT offers in G A from 2 deaneries and I will turn one of them down.

they will indeed make offers next week for other candidates at East Midlands for ST4 G A. All the best for everyone.

I would think twice before rejecting a LAT ST4 even if already in one for the following reasons:

-it keeps you in training

-it proves that you function well in higher specialist training

-you have a foot in the door for future ST4 jobs (in theory)

-even if only one year of LAT counts for CCT if you get a ST4 job you can still fulfil competencies ST4-6 and apply via article 14 if nothing else

- you can always leave it if you get a substantive job

But of course there are personal considerents etc. Hope you will not regret your choice.
