How to Enter the SAS Grade

You can enter SAS posts at almost any point in your career when you decide to leave the training pathway. However, it will be easier to pursue a fulfilling career that includes training and progression if you complete some of your training before leaving the pathway. Entry methods will vary, depending on the kind of post for which you apply.

Specialty doctor posts will allow you to progress through the grade and you will be expected to take part in regular appraisals. You will also take part in job planning that will ensure you are given the opportunity to develop your skills and knowledge to assist your progression through the grade.

The minimum entry requirements for specialty doctor posts are:

  • full General Medical Council (GMC) registration
  • a minimum of four years’ postgraduate training (two years of which must be in the relevant specialty)

Both the BMA and NHS Employers offer further information on specialty doctor careers.
