NHS Scientist Training Programme

Latest stats for this programme in England and  Wales show that there are good opportunities for medical physicists in the STP. Overall competition has reduced:

There are approximately on average 22 applicants to every STP post (2016). In 2014 the figure was 31 applicants to every STP post and in the 2015 the figure was 26 applicants to every STP post.

For 2016 entry, clinical immunology had by far and away the highest competition ratio, with 80 applicants per post. There was some good news for the Medical Physicists though, with only 8 applicants per post.
