Training by specialty

 The College produces curricula and guidance for a range of medical, clinical scientist and veterinary pathology specialties. 

The medical curricula must meet the Standards for curricula and assessment systems, integrate the Generic Professional Capabilities Framework and be approved by the General Medical Council before they are published. 

Higher Specialist Scientific Training (HSST) curricula must be approved by the Education and Training Scrutiny Group of Health Education England (HEE) before they are published. Clinical scientist specialties are identified by ‘HSST’ appearing next to the relevant specialty.
