3. Dual registration
The opportunity of entirely optional dual registration is available for those who are already on the Specialty Register of either the General Medical Council or General Dental Council in Public Health Medicine or Dental Public Health, respectively.
UKPHR only regulates public health professionals who practise in the UK – our remit is protection of the UK public. As we are a UK register, therefore registration with us is not recognised overseas. We do not regulate international public health professionals.
If you are living overseas and wish to apply to register with UKPHR as a specialist, you will need to supply evidence in the form of a job offer or visa/living arrangements for the UK.
Upon receipt of an application, verification of entry on the relevant specialist register is undertaken by UKPHR, with no further assessment being required for registration to be granted.
