CESR & the Portfolio Pathway

The Acute Internal Medicine (AIM) curriculum was published in July 2022. For a transition period, you can make a CESR application against either the new curriculum or the previous version.

This option is available until the transition deadline of 31 March 2024.

Below are guidance documents for each version of the curriculum with the Joint Royal Colleges of Physicians Training Board.

CESR / CEGPR will soon become the Portfolio pathway. If you want to apply under the CESR / CEGPR Equivalence requirements, you will find your Specialty Specific Guidance below this message.

Please note, the CESR / CEGPR pathway expires at 23:59 on 29 November. From that point onwards, if you want to apply under the new Portfolio pathway, please view the GMC CESR updated Specialty Specific Guidance page.

For specific guidance for applying for CESR in Acute Medicine from the GMC see below.
