Retrospective granting of CCT to doctors granted a CESR through the combined programme
This guide is for doctors who have previously been granted a CESR under the combined programme, who want to request a CCT retrospectively, and:
- have trained in approved UK training posts for the minimum number of years required for their specialty; or,
- trained in a specialty with no minimum training time.
The combined programme is for doctors who have either trained in non-approved post(s), or who entered an approved training programme above the first year, and then completed the rest of the programme, and demonstrated the curricula competencies.
You can not request to be retrospectively granted with a CCT in place of a CESR if:
- you used the CESR/CEGPR route to specialist/GP registration.
- you trained in the UK for less than the required minimum number of years.
