dc.description.abstractComments on an article by Asim Naeem (see record 2004-20521-008) that provided tips and advice for trainees aiming for higher specialist training as specialist registrars. However, we would like to point out certain factual inaccuracies which require further clarification. First, the College's Higher Specialist Training Handbook (Royal College of Psychiatrists, 1998) clearly states that higher specialist trainees in lecturer posts who do five or six clinical sessions become eligible for a single certificate of completion of training (CCT) (formerly CCST) after 3 years. It is only when they do 4 clinical sessions that the single CCST is after 4 years. Second, overseas doctors who are non-European Economic Area nationals and do not have indefinite leave to remain in the UK, are also eligible to apply in open competition for type I specialist registrar training programmes leading to CCT. Overseas doctors without UK indefinite residence leave therefore are not limited to taking up fixed-term training appointment (FTTA) or type 2 posts, which do not lead to award of CCT, and conversely FTTAs are not limited to overseas doctors without residency rights.
