Can a trainee change my specialism after they have started the STP?

When you accept the offer of a place on the training programme, you are agreeing to undertake that training in a particular specialism for the duration of the training. Therefore a request to change the specialism cannot be accepted. The only exceptions are for any trainees recruited to undefined medical physics and undefined clinical engineering programmes as the employer does not require the specialism to be defined until the end of the rotational phase.
