(Original post by geniequeen48)
After graduating medical school you are looking at a minimum of 9 years - training posts are very competitive so people often need to take time out for teaching/research etc to boost their CVs.

For ENT you would do 2 years of Foundation Placement (F1 and F2) like all other medical graduates. You would then apply to Core Surgical Training - a 2 year programme which usually consists of at least 4 different surgical specialities known as CT1 and CT2.

If you pass your Surgical Exams and CT2 then you can apply for the ENT Registrar Training programme which is pretty competitive. You are then known as ST3+ as you work up the ENT ladder.

Once you complete your ENT reg training you can then apply to be an ENT consultant
