Stroke Medicine Sub-specialty.
Sub-specialty Stroke Medicine in Yorkshire and the Humber
Stroke Medicine encompasses elements of neurology, cardiovascular disease, ageing and rehabilitation and the primary purpose of sub-specialist training is to promote the development of physicians with the knowledge, skills and attitudes to function as an expert consultant resource within specialist stroke services.
This programme is open to all trainees holding MRCP (UK) or equivalent and an NTN in a relevant medical specialty, namely Geriatric Medicine, Neurology, Rehabilitation Medicine, Cardiology, Clinical Pharmacology and Therapeutics, or General Internal Medicine. The background specialty of such clinicians is considered to be less important than the possession of those competencies needed to provide a specialist stroke service. After satisfactory completion of Subspecialty training in Stroke Medicine, trainees would be eligible to have the Subspecialty of Stroke Medicine included in their entry in the GMC's Specialist Register, after the award of a CCT in their parent specialty.
Stroke Medicine sub-specialty accreditation is an additional qualification (involving a total of 24 months training; 12 months in the parent specialty and a further 1 year period in an approved advanced stroke training post). This ‘advanced year' is usually undertaken in the penultimate or final year of the trainee's parent specialty training and whilst still retaining an NTN in their parent specialty. This will enable the trainee to complete sub-specialty certification in Stroke Medicine.
In order to assess your suitability for this training programme please refer to the national Person Specifications on the Specialty Training website.
The duration of this sub training programme is 1 year. The actual duration may depend on the circumstances of individual trainees.
