Specialty specific guidance for CESR and CEGPR
We require evidence from you when you apply for registration as a specialist or GP via a Certificate of Completion of Training (CCT). Our Specialty Specific Guidance (SSG) documents explain what we expect you to submit for your application.
If there’s no CCT specialty that closely matches yours, please use the generic guidance. Please read the relevant guidance and gather your evidence before submitting your application.
Some specialties have made significant changes to the curriculum. Once a curriculum gets approved and published, you may make your CESR/CEGPR application in either the new curriculum or the previous version. We call this "dual running", and it ensures fairness between the CCT and CESR/CEGPR route. "Dual run" curricula will likely be available until implementation of CCT training for the relevant specialty.
Your SSG will tell you whether the curriculum for your specialty will be dual run.
Our position statement on "Transition of learners to a new curriculum" contains further information.
It’s important you check our website regularly for updates to the SSG and curriculum for your specialty. These documents can be updated at any time and you’ll be assessed against the curriculum in place at the time you apply.
