Specialty Doctor in Emergency Medicine job, with CESR programme

  • May 02, 2022

Experienced overseas Emergency Medicine trust doctors, or consultants who have completed specialist training, can apply for specialty doctor posts in the NHS with CESR programmes included in the job plan. 

So, if you are committed, motivated and enthusiastic in embracing the CESR application once in the UK, this could be the best route towards gaining entry to the specialist register. Many trusts are piloting such projects, which will support you via a CESR programme tailored to your needs.

Specialist Register for Emergency Medicine

All consultants (other than a locum consultant appointments) must be on the specialist register of the General Medical Council (GMC). To be eligible to apply for specialist registration with the GMC, doctors must have successfully completed a GMC-approved training programme leading to CCT, or applied for a certificate confirming Eligibility for Specialist Registration (CESR).

Doctors who have not completed a full GMC-approved training programme and wish to have their training, qualifications and experience assessed for eligibility for entry onto the specialist register must make an application under The General and Specialist Medical Practice Order for a CESR.
