  1. Yes, you can appear for JSCFE FRCS after completion of MCh from India.
  2. JSCFE FRCS is a valid qualification for GMC Registration
  3. If you have cleared JSCFE FRCS, you need not clear MRCS again, you can bypass MRCS.
  4. JSCFE is a good route for GMC registration if you have already completed or pursuing your specialist training in India.
  5. Once you get a GMC registration, you can apply for training jobs in the UK.
  6. You can find a suitable training job and start practicing, but you won’t be able to apply for a consultant post until you get into GMC Specialist register. For this you will have to use the CESR pathway.
  7. To get into GMC specialist register, following are the pathways:

1. CCT
To apply for CCT, you must have attained all of your specialty training via a GMC approved UK training post.
To apply for CESR CP award, you would have had a mix of your training done via a GMC approved postgraduate qualification and non-approved training post. For example, you would use this route if you are an international doctor who has trained overseas and then joined the NHS at ST5 level as you were able to demonstrate your competencies gained outside of a GMC approved training post.
Even if you have obtained all of your specialist training overseas or within a non-approved GMC training post and your experience and qualifications are relevant to the entirety of the curriculum, you can use CESR as a pathway of getting onto the Specialist Register.
