Training and development (AVM)

This page provides useful information on the training and development for this specialty and also has tips for people at all stages of their training including medical school.

Trainees follow one of five pathways:

Trainees must complete MRCP or MRCPCH or MRCS (ENT) plus full DOHNS (Diploma of Otolarngology Head and Neck Surgery) as appropriate as part of their core training.

The ST3 specialty curriculum makes allowance for the fact that trainees may not have had any specific training or exposure to AVM on entry at ST3. The approved postgraduate training programme for AVM is available from the JRCPTB.

Where trainees have prior experience in the related specialties it may be possible to reduce the length of time in higher specialty training from five years to four. Successful completion of specialty training (ST3-7) will enable you to gain a Certificate of Completion of Training (CCT) and to be registered on the Specialist Register in audiovestibular medicine.
