Specialities and Curricula

Assessing my application

If you’re applying in a CCT specialty you’ll need to provide evidence that you meet the high level learning outcomes in the CCT curriculum for your specialty.

For non-CCT specialties you should read the curriculum which most closely matches yours to get an idea of what is required. 

The name of your specialty may not be exactly the same as the name used in the UK. If your specialty covers the same fields as a CCT specialty you may be eligible to apply.
You can check the fields of the CCT specialties in the curricula listed below.
