What evidence do I need to apply?

Your evidence 

We’ve created guidance for each CCT specialty with the relevant Royal College or Faculty. This will tell you the evidence we expect you to submit for your application. 

If there’s no CCT specialty which closely matches yours, please use the generic guidance. You shouldn’t submit your application until you’ve read this guidance and gathered your evidence.

It’s important you check our website regularly for updates to the SSG and curriculum for your specialty.
