This guide is for European doctors who want to move from provisional to full registration with a licence to practise.

You are eligible for this route if you:

and you:

  • graduated from a medical school in an EEA country or Switzerland
  • have completed the first year of the Foundation Programme (F1). 

You must not start the second year of the Foundation Programme (F2) or do any work that requires full registration with a licence to practise before full registration has been granted.

If you completed your internship outside the UK, you must apply for full registration using this different route.
