staff and associate specialist doctor
staff and associate specialist doctorAn experienced and senior career-grade doctor who works across all clinical and non-clinical specialties. Traditionally, training has not been part of the SAS doctor contract and little emphasis is placed on SAS doctors’ continuing professional development.
The staff-grade posts create a problem as the doctors in such positions have not been formally trained to the level required of the consultants practising in the UK, nor were they able to move to European posts.
