How to apply
There are two entry routes to Specialty Training in RCSI:
Direct progression from CST
Equivalent standards route (ESR) – this route applies for trainees who are unsuccessful at progressing direct from CST; may have previously undertaken the CST programme; or may have completed equivalent training elsewhere.
Please note if you are dropping in an application in person you will be required to leave it with security in building 121 (entrance on St Stephen's Green) to be delivered to the Surgical training office, ensure you clearly mark it with the name of the administrator + specialty + Surgical Affairs. The building closes at 5pm so if you are dropping after hours you can leave your envelope with the porters in the main college (entrance on York Street) until 10pm. If you are doing either please email the relevant admin to confirm and we would advise noting the name of the person you leave it with along with time and date).
