GP Registrars

A GP Registrar is a junior doctor training in a GP surgery under the supervision and mentoring of an approved GP trainer. The GP registrar year is the last year of a 5-year training span to become a GP in the United Kingdom.

Doctors that wish to undertake speciality training in General Practice are required to do a further 3 years training after their two foundation years. The 3 years compromise approximately 18 months in hospital posts and 18 months in GP training practices.
