Inter Deanery Transfers
























Eligibility Criteria Change.


Please note that this change only applies for doctors applying to move between English regions.


Doctors wishing to move between English regions will now be eligible to apply with an ARCP Outcome 2 or 3, provided they can also submit a letter of support from their Postgraduate Dean.

Doctors who want to move into an HEE region from Scotland, Northern Ireland or Wales will still require an Outcome 1. Similarly, trainees wishing to move from an HEE region to Scotland, Northern Ireland or Wales will still require an Outcome 1.

If you would like to apply for a transfer, it is important that you read the Trainee Guide to Inter Deanery Transfers (IDTs) to find out about the process, eligibility criteria and application requirements. In addition to this, further information can be found on the Post Graduate Medical and Dental Education (PGMDE) Support Portal. Please ensure you that you have read through the FAQs before you submit a query to the national team.

All documentation referred to can be found in the Resource Bank on this website.

The national IDT team provide regular updates via an e-newsletter so that subscribers can receive the latest information including key dates, amendments to process, changes to criteria and notification of service improvement projects.


In addition to the e-newsletter, key dates and information are released via Twitter.


Additional information will be added to this website shortly, ahead of the next IDT window which opens in August 2017.
