Accreditation of Transferable Competences Framework

The Academy of Medical Royal Colleges (AoMRC) has developed the ‘Accreditation of Transferable Competences Framework’ (ATCF). The ATCF recognises that many specialties have core competences that are common across curricula and is aimed at doctors in training who have gained competences in one specialty but then wish to change career direction. If some of the previous training is relevant to the new CCT specialty it will not need to be repeated.

Please note that doctors in training who wish to take advantage of this route aim to achieve the Certificate of Completion of Training (CCT). Our existing system for the recognition of previous competencies (CESR/CEGPR), suitable for some doctors, is not affected by ATCF.

For more information and FAQs, please see the Academy of Medical Royal Colleges website.
