Certificate of completion of training application

This guide is for doctors looking to apply for a certificate of completion of training and to join the Specialist or GP Registers.

A certificate of completion of training confirms a doctor has completed an approved UK training programme and is eligible for entry onto the Specialist/GP Register.

This will explain when we will award your certificate of completion of training and give guidance on your next steps to registration.

Important information for doctors intending to work as a GP in the UK

To start work as a GP in the UK, you'll need to complete a number of processes. Some of these are handled by organisations other than the GMC.

You must read our General Practice in the UK page for information about applying to join a Performers List and Induction and Returner schemes.

These are extra requirements for you to work as a GP in the UK.
