Trainees are appointed by competitive interview at ST3 level to complete 5 years of training to receive a CCT as a Consultant Urologist and to deliver core Urology services with a subspecialty interest. Post CCT training in a sub-speciality or Urology in General will allow recognition of the individual as a Consultant Urological Surgeon who will be able to deliver more complex and sub-speciality care.
Trainees start or rotate on the first Wednesday of October. Some trainees may rotate on the first Wednesday of April.
The hospitals included on the Urology rotation are as follows:
|Airedale General Hospital||Chesterfield Royal Hospital|
|Bradford Royal Infirmary||Doncaster Royal Infirmary|

|Harrogate District Hospital||Royal Hallamshire Hospital, Sheffield|
|Huddersfield Royal Infirmary|

We have a single programme, but two geographically distinct rotations at the moment. Candidates can express a preference, and in response to training needs, trainees can move throughout the region.
