CPSP Scholarship Program

The President of CPSP is pleased to announce that, following a recent visit to the UK, the College has been able to secure additional clinical placements for CPSP trainees and Fellows at University Hospitals Birmingham (UHB). CPSP has approved these clinical placements and the training provided at UHB meets the College requirements for postgraduate examinations of the College.

The College provides a stipend through its Scholarship programme to trainees and Fellows selected for these placements which are for two years duration. At present, around 50 trainees and Fellows are receiving high quality hands-on training at UHB.

UHB NHS Trust is one of the largest university teaching hospital Trusts in the UK. UHB has an international reputation and recognition for postgraduate training in healthcare. Trainees on these clinical placements are supervised by a clinical supervisor and their training is overseen by an Educational Supervisor. The College has also appointed a Regional Director, based in Birmingham, who is available to guide trainees during their two-year programme.

The GMC requires (and only accepts) the IELTS Academic test.

Listening and Speaking are the same for both tests, but the subject matter of the Reading and Writing components differs for each test. So you need to apply for IELTS Academic to get the GMC Registration.

You can appear either for Regular IELTS or UKVI IELTS but you need to have all four components Listening, Speaking, Reading and Writing for GMC registration.
