To be acceptable to us, your primary medical qualification must have been awarded after a programme of study that was made up of at least 5,500 hours and lasted at least five years.
A programme of study is the course of study followed by each individual applicant leading to their qualification and does not include:
- study at an institution where you were considered unsuitable to qualify as a doctor
- study at an institution where you were refused graduation
- study at an institution where you were offered an alternative degree title
- study at an institution that isn’t acceptable to us
- study at an institution that wasn’t acceptable to us at the time of your studies there.
This is a requirement of Article 24 of the Directive on Recognition of Professional Qualifications (the Directive).
Article 24 falls within Chapter 3 of Title II, which provides for recognition of professional qualifications 'on the basis of coordination of minimum training conditions'.
