- Dermatology training and career options in the U.K. for Indian graduates
Dermatology requires a minimum of four years (whole time equivalent) as a Specialist Registrar in a Dermatology Training Programme. These posts are awarded in competition which is often very strong. They are advertised in the British Medical Journal (BMJ). Successful completion of formal training (known as type 1 programme) will lead to the award of a Certificate of Completion of Specialist Training (CCST). Many overseas doctors will be employed as Visiting Specialist Registrars (VSpR) and will be engaged in training in either short programmes (known as type 2 programmes) that do not lead to a CCST or a type 1 programme where they are eligible. Obtaining the CCST makes them eligible to be placed on the Specialist Register and hence apply for Consultant posts.
