COVID-19 and the 2021 GP Trainee Recruitment Process

In a time where the demand for more GP's has never been more apparent, we are endeavoring to ensure the 2021 GP trainee recruitment process runs as smoothly as possible.

There will be unavoidable changes from previous years but the ICGP GP training unit, Training Schemes, NDTP and HSE are working to minimise any effects on the process as a result of COVID-19 restrictions.

In the first instance our application and information session will be held via webinar on Saturday 17 October. Registration for this will open shortly.

Secondly, all interviews will be held online during the second week in February.

Applicants will be kept informed of details regarding interviews in the coming weeks and months
