The Severn Deanery School of Primary Care offers trainees the opportunity to spend time out of programme between ST2 and ST3 to further develop their career.

There are OOPE rotations which are 4 year rotations that you can apply for at the time of recruitment to GP training. These will include an 11 month (unpaid) placement with African Health Placements in between ST2 and ST3.

In addition, trainees not on an OOPE rotation can apply for a further 5 OOPE placements during their ST1 year. Full details can be found on the Severn Deanery School of Primary Care website:
