How to apply for GP Specialty Training (GPST)

To become an independent general practitioner in the UK, you must successfully complete GP Specialty Training (GPST). This is usually 3 years but may include contributing time from other training or experience.

GP training normally includes at least 18 months in an approved training practice with the remaining time in approved hospital or integrated training posts.

Multi-Specialty Recruitment Assessment (MSRA)

The MSRA is a computer-based assessment. It lets us assess whether you have the competences needed to become a GP and is based around clinical scenarios.
