Recruitment to two year Foundation Programmes  - August 2016

Phase two: Ranking Programme PreferencesAn image of a laptop, open on the NHS choices website.

On the 3 March 2016 applicants who are on the primary list will be informed of their SJT score and allocated to a Foundation School.

During Phase 2 of the recruitment process, applicants allocated to the Wessex Foundation School will rank online all programmes offered by Wessex Trusts.

Wessex has 10 Trusts, further details of each of the Trusts can be found on the Trust Information webpage 

Exclamation mark!


The deadline for ranking all programmes on the Foundation Programme Application System ( FPAS ) in order of preference is Monday 28 March 2016 (12 noon).


Applicants will be automatically matched to programmes according to score and applicant preference. This is a simple match in score order and will place applicants in a Trust/programme according to their ranked preferences. You will therefore be matched in score order, gaining a place in a Trust/programme before applicants who scored lower than you. Where two or more applicants have the same score, auto-match will use random selection to decide which applicant to take first.

You will receive notification of your Trust/programme allocation via email on 5 April 2016.

Appointment to a post is dependent upon the applicant successfully completing medical school (passing finals) and is subject to pre-employment checks and references.
