Rheumatology/GIM training is a 5 year highly competitive programme with ST3 level entry. Historically the programme has trained both dually accredited rheumatologist/physicians as well as single accredited rheumatologists. The current rotations however encourage all trainees to accredit in Rheumatology and GIM in keeping with national targets. Progression through the programme will be assessed by an annual ARCP.
