Progressing to provisional fellowship

In order to progress to provisional fellowship training, you will need to complete the requirements of advanced training and secure a suitable provisional fellowship position. 

Each provisional fellowship position will need an approved study plan. Some study plans are pre-approved by the college, but you may put forward your own individualised study plans for approval. For information relating to provisional positions, please see below.
