If there are more applicants than posts, how will the successful applicants be selected?

Modified on Wed, 19 Jul, 2023 at 4:57 PM

Listed below is the priority order for each criterion, prioritisation is factored into vacant post allocation.

Priority 1

Criterion 1A and 1B

Priority 2

Criterion 2 and 3

Priority 3

Criterion 4

Priority 4

Criterion 5

Please note: Criterion 5 trainees applying under any other circumstances will be considered after all criterion 1-4 have been reviewed.

Training regions will look for vacant posts according to the eligibility information they receive. They will tell the NIDT team if they have a vacancy for you. If there are not enough posts and you are equally weighted and could fill the same post as another IDT applicant, the trainee who gets the post will be randomly selected for transfer using a validated randomisation algorithm.

This method, supported by the BMA, means allocation outcomes can be reached objectively and equal opportunity to transfer is given to all eligible applicants, which creates an equitable and fair process. This process takes place in the presence of a BMA representative and a lay representative.
