Improving the national consistency and approval of sub-specialty training programmes

This document sets out our requirements for deaneries and local offices who are delivering sub-specialty training programmes and for the royal colleges who write sub-specialty curricula.

Our aim is to improve overall national consistency and fairness and to improve the approval system of sub-specialty training programmes.

Who is this document for?
The requirements are relevant to those involved in the organisation, delivery and receipt of postgraduate sub-specialty medical education and training in the UK, and those doctors who are on or considering undertaking GMC approved postgraduate sub-specialty training programmes.
