Inter-Deanery transfer is the process where a trainee may relocate their training to a different deanery. There are eligibility criteria and specific times of the year for applications (“National IDT windows”).
The main reasons for an IDT will be related to a significant unforeseen change in circumstances – health, domestic, relationships. Ability to relocate will also depend on the availability of training posts in the preferred Deanery. The trainee must have completed 9 months of their training programme and have at least 1 year remaining in their training to qualify. They can be on an outcome 1, 2 or 3 from their latest ARCP and must have the support of their TPD and Postgraduate Dean.
Please see the Postgraduate medical and dental education support portal (PSP) and talk to the TPD for further information.
