Training to become a General Practioner will also involve a Specialty Registrar training scheme and completion will lead to eligibility for entry on the new General Practice Register.
Specialty Registrar training involves structured specialist or general practitioner training programmes that begin directly after completion of the 2 year foundation training programme. Completing the training scheme will lead to the award of a Certificate of Completion of Training (CCT), subject to satisfactory in-training assessment and progress; this is a necessary pre-requisite for entry onto the Specialist Register or GP Register.
The curricula used for the different specialty training schemes will be set by the relevant medical royal college. Under the old system, before applying for the old Registrar posts, applicants were required to have sat and passed part, or all, of a medical royal college's membership examinations while still a Senior House Officer. Under the new system Foundation doctors do not need to sit these exams as they play no part in the selection process and are actively discouraged from doing so. The appropriate royal college exams will now be taken during the first year or two of the Specialty Registrar training scheme.
