CESR (CP) application pack

The CESR through the Combined Programme (CP) route is for trainees who have been appointed to a GMC approved deanery specialist/specialty training programme above ST1 level. Such individuals will not be eligible for a CCT if they have not completed all of their training in posts approved by GMC for the specialty to which they have been appointed. It also applies to trainees who may have undertaken a period of training during their specialist/specialty training programme and not had it prospectively approved by GMC or retrospectively approved by the College prior to 31 July 2007.

All trainees have a maximum of 12 months to apply for their CCT or CESR through the Combined Programme (CP) route. Trainees who do not apply in time will only be eligible to apply for entry to the specialist register through the equivalence route of CESR and will no longer be eligible for a CCT or CESR (CP).
