Clinicians wishing to enrol in a Residency Programme to achieve Specialist status will usually have completed a one-year Internship Programme.
Supervised Residencies are offered in a wide variety of disciplines throughout The Specialist Division. The clinical training incorporates at least 3 years working under the supervision of European, American or RCVS-recognised Specialists. During this time, Residents will participate in research projects and publish papers in peer reviewed journals. At the end of this period, they must successfully sit rigorous examinations either through the RCVS or the appropriate European college. To ensure that they continue to study and keep up to date with all new information, Specialists are re-validated every 5 years.
If you would like further information about Residencies, or wish to apply, you should contact the referral centres directly. Their details can be found via the links below:
