Programme preferences will be mandatory for applicants to complete in order to receive an offer.
Each region will decide the level of information available to choose at this stage. This will vary between:
- a single preference option at the region level; with allocation to totation being dceided upon after offers
- a sub-division of the region into sectors but without specific rotation details
- rotation and hospital information for the 12 months.
It will not be possible to confirm until programme preferences are open which it will be, and is likely to vary between regions.
Even if there is just one choice, applicants must preference the lone option in order to be considered at the offer stage.
Much of the guidance on programme preferences for those applying to IMY1 is applicable to IMY3 so go there for more information.
