UKPHR has opened registration to public health Specialty Registrars (specialty trainees). The rationale for this is that it establishes equivalence with Registrars from a medical background who would at the same stage be regulated by the General Medical Council. It brings this group into regulation earlier and provides a pathway to full registration once they gain the appropriate public health competence.
Registration will be relevant to public health Specialty Registrars who are not registered with a statutory regulator. Examples of statutory regulators include the General Dental Council and the General Medical Council.
