Time taken Out of Programme (OOP) can be an incredibly rewarding and fulfiling experience, with trainees seeking a broad range of anaesthetics and non-anaesthetics experience both at home and abroad. The paperwork below should help with your application.
Remember to ensure you apply in plenty of time of your planned OOP period as the deanery requires a long notice period in order to accomodate the request.
Please refer to the West Midlands Deanery website for all the relevant links and information.
Out of programme pause (OOPP) allows trainees to step out of formal training for up to one year to undertake an NHS or other patient facing UK based non-training post. This flexibility initiative can be a vital tool to support trainee wellbeing.
