    "Pre-registration house officer (1 year)
    The pre-registration house officer (PRHO) year in undertaken by all doctors. At this stage basic clinical training in medicine and surgery, and possibly general practice is undertaken. PRHO's are provisionally registered with the GMC. However, on successful completion of this year, full registration with the GMC may be gained, which enables you to practise independently as a doctor.

    Senior house officer (2 to 3 years)
    At this point doctors train in a number of different specialties and it would be usual to begin to consider what eventual career path you would like to follow. For example, whether to become a GP or a hospital consultant in a specific specialty.

    Specialist registrar (4 to 5 years)
    This is a period of specialist training in an area you have chosen. By the end of this stage you should have completed the relevant medical royal college exams for your chosen specialty."

    I was just unsure how the MMC is affecting training once out of med school, the nhs page on it wasn't particularly detailed (http://www.nhscareers.nhs.uk/details...lt.aspx?Id=561)

    Nope, that's changed now (have a look at the MMC website):
