I am an assessor for the Royal College of Ophthalmologists. Doctors can apply for a Certificate of Eligibility for Specialist Registration (CESR) if they feel they are of the same standard as someone who has recently obtained a Certificate of Completion of training in UK. This is to ensure the highest standard of patient care and safety. It is important to ensure that this standard is maintained as the decision to grant a CESR will allow the applicant to be appointed a Consultant in the NHS.
