Historical education and training programmes

We hold lists of programmes that are approved for set historical periods that provide eligibility to apply to our Register or to have registration records annotated. Most records of historically approved programmes can be found in the searchable list.

The programmes in this section were usually approved by our predecessor, the Council for Professions Supplementary to Medicine (CPSM), or by another relevant regulator or professional body (if the profession was moved into statutory regulation from a voluntary system).
