Applying through CESR - Designed for doctors who wish to join the Specialist Register by applying for a Certificate of Eligibility for Specialist Registration, whose specialist training, qualifications or experience was partly or completely acquired outside of an approved CCT programme.
A certificate of eligibility for specialist registration (CESR) or applying through CESR - certificate is a way for doctors who have been at staff, speciality, or associate specialist grade to gain a specialist qualification. It also acts as a route to applying for consultant jobs for doctors who have not followed a speciality training programme in the United Kingdom and achieved a certificate of completion of training so applying through CESR - certificate is a way forward.
The process of a CESR application involves submitting a raft of evidence to prove that you have the equivalent experience, skills, and competencies of doctors who have followed the speciality training route. Some applicants are required to gain “top-up” experience to meet this benchmark. The CESR application is equivalent to a CCT and certifies that the recipient has all the competencies defined in the CCT curriculum, and so is eligible for admission to the Specialist Register. This half-day programme is designed to widen the view of the doctor who is thinking of applying or who is in the process of applying.
