National recruitment 2016
National recruitment to dental foundation training (DFT) which was formerly named vocational training, was introduced for dental graduates entering DFT in 2012.
This is part of an initiative backed by the Department of Health to develop national recruitment to foundation and specialty training for medical and dental students in the UK and is intended to ensure an equitable and transparent recruitment process that minimises disruption to dental students and trainers.
The recruitment process is led by Shared Services on behalf of Health Education England and COPDEND.
