Broad-Based Training

Broad Based Training (BBT) involves two years of structured core training which is completed before entering specialty training. The two year programme is made up of six month posts in each of the following specialties: core medical training, general practice, paediatrics and psychiatry. Satisfactory completion of the programme allows direct entry to CT2 or ST2 level training in one of the four specialties.  

After BBT and subject to satisfactory progression, you can choose which of the four specialties they wish to continue to train in, without having to apply through competitive entry.
For general practice, you would enter the specialty training programme at the start of ST2. When the GP training programme is completed satisfactorily, you will be eligible for a Certificate of Completion of Training (CCT).

Please note that the BBT route is currently only available for recruitment in NHS Scotland. More information and details about how to apply can be found on their website.
