retrospective approval

retrospective approval

A UK term of art for the ex post facto approval given to a junior doctor trainee for a period of postgraduate (specialist) training that would count towards attaining a Certificate of Completion of Specialist Training.

In 2007, the Postgraduate Medical Education Training Board (PMETB) reconfirmed its previously issued guidance on routes to specialist registration—i.e., PMETB will not give retrospective approval to posts already undertaken. Therefore, doctors entering specialty training above year one based on posts in the UK or overseas that did not have PMETB training approval will gain entry to the Specialist Register on successful completion of their programmes through the award of a certificate confirming eligibility for specialist registration (CESR), the Article 14 route. For doctors who wish to pursue a career at consultant level in the UK the method of entry onto the Specialist Register is irrelevant.
