Specialty training

The College plays a major role in the training of clinical oncologists, setting the standards and curriculum that lead to the award of a Certificate of Completion of Training (CCT) and entry onto the GMC's Specialist Register. Throughout clinical oncology training, the RCR supports trainees to gain the skills required to develop and deliver comprehensive non-surgical oncology treatment for individual patients with cancer. 

This section aims to provide all the information that trainees and trainers alike will need from enrolling with the College at the start of training to entry onto the GMC's Specialist Register and everything in between.
