After passing the part 1, 2 exams one has to get a specialist registrar (SpR) post. Once two years have elapsed on a SpR post the doctor can appear for CCST (certificate of completion of specialist training). Only those doctors who have earned the CCST qualification can be considered as Specialists in Medicine and eligible for consultant post.
