Dentist (ORE/NBDE/NDEB/ADC)

UK-OVERSEAS REGISTRATION EXAM

About ORE:

The ORE is an exam that overseas qualified dentists must pass in order to register with the GDC. Registration allows dentists to practice dentistry unsupervised in the UK.

 The ORE tests the clinical skills and knowledge of dentists from outside the European Economic Area whose qualifications are not eligible for full registration with the GDC here in the UK.  Candidates are expected to meet or exceed the standard of a ‘just passed’ UK BDS graduate.

The exam is based on the UK dental curriculum and uses modern assessment methods to ensure a robust and consistent exam.

Exam Pattern:

The exam has two parts:

Part 1 is a written exam;

Part 2 is a clinical exam

 

PART 1

There are two computer-based exam papers for Part 1 of the ORE:

  • Paper A covers clinically applied dental science and clinically applied human disease
  • Paper B covers aspects of clinical dentistry, including law and ethics and health and safety

Each paper lasts 3 hours and is made up of Multiple Short Answer questions (Extended Matching Questions and Single Best Answer Questions).

 

PART 2

There are four components to Part 2 of the ORE:

An operative test on a dental manikin - Candidates are required to perform three procedures over a period of three hours. These procedures primarily involve the preparation and restoration of teeth, but may also include other procedures where appropriate simulation can allow assessment of operative skills.

An Objective Structured Clinical Examination (OSCE) - This is where candidates visit a series of ‘stations’ which test their clinical skills. These may include history-taking and assessment, communication skills (such as an explanation of problems and treatment plans), judgement and decision making, ethics and attitudes, and clinical examination. The series of stations may cover aspects of the following:  behavioral sciences, human disease, law, ethics and professionalism, clinical dentistry, restorative dentistry, paediatric dentistry, orthodontics, preventive dentistry, dental public health, comprehensive oral care, oral surgery, oral medicine, oral pathology and oral microbiology, dental radiology and imaging. 

There will be a maximum of 20 stations and the OSCE lasts 2 hours in total.

A diagnostic and treatment planning exercise - This involves an actor who will provide an appropriate history (but will not be examined), together with relevant additional information such as photographs, radiographs, study models or results of other special tests. The exercise may involve any of the above aspects of clinical dentistry.

A practical examination in medical emergencies - This assessment consists of two parts:

a structured scenario-based oral

demonstration of single handed basic life support. This will include cardiopulmonary resuscitation using a resuscitation manikin

FEES:

ORE - Part 1         -        £ 806

ORE - Part 2         -        £ 2929

 

ATTEMPTS

Candidates are allowed up to four attempts at each Part of the ORE

If you fail either Part 1 or Part 2 of the exam four times you will not be given the opportunity to sit the exam again.

CENTERS

Part 1 is run by King’s College, London

Part 2 is run by a consortium group and the four components of the exam are held at separate venues in London. All four venues are situated near to each other

 

Can a candidate work in the UK as a dentist while waiting to complete the ORE?

Yes, you can work, but you must have temporary registration with the GDC. Please be aware that posts available under temporary registration are limited and there is also a very high demand for these posts.

 

Note: A candidate can go on a STANDARD VISITOR VISA to write the ORE exam.

Physiotherapist (HCPC)

The Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC, formerly the Health Professions Council, HPC) is a Statutory Regulator of over 344,000 professionals from 16 health and care professions in the United Kingdom. 

Some of the Professions are - Physiotherapy, Biomedical, Dietician, Psychology, Radiography, Paramedic, Chiropodist etc..

 

Qualifications

Each profession at the HCPC has its own specific criteria for assessment, which are set out in the profession specific elements of the standards of proficiency. The overarching framework applies to all professions and an applicant must satisfy the Registration Assessor in their application how they meet the benchmark Standards of proficiency. This can be demonstrated through a combination of education, training and experience gained in practise of the profession for which they are seeking registration.

Applicants are strongly advised to give as much detail in their application as possible and get their university/college to complete the course information form.

HCPC does not comment on the ability of an applicant to practice in their country of training, however, some courses are broader with less in depth coverage, and others are more detailed but have a narrower scope. Significant experience may make up for shortfalls in training.

HCPC assessors make their determinations based on all of the information that you provide. Please remember to provide as much relevant detail as possible.

 

English proficiency

The ability to communicate effectively in English is critical to working effectively as a health professional in the UK. Consequently, we can ask you for information about your ability to use English.

If you are making an application to become registered as a Speech and Language Therapist the language testing exemption does not apply (please see the table below).

Applicants whose first language is not English and who are required to provide a language test certificate as evidence of their proficiency must ensure that it is, or is comparable to, IELTS level 7.0 with no element below 6.5 (or IELTS level 8.0 with no element below 7.5 for Speech and language therapists). If you propose to rely upon a non-IELTS test score that is not listed below, it will be your responsibility to provide evidence that it is comparable to the requisite IELTS levels. Failure to do so will delay the processing of your application. 

IELTS or other English language tests which are equivalent to IELTS level 7 (no element below 6.5) may be submitted. If you are submitting any other acceptable test that is not IELTS, you must prove the equivalence of that test. The standard required for speech and language therapists is level 8 (no element below 7.5).

All test certificates must be dated within two years of the date we receive your application.

* As communication in English is a core professional skill for speech and language therapists, this

higher standard applies to all applicants (except those who have completed an approved speech and language therapy programme in the UK).

Specialist Dentist - Registration

`

SPECIALIST DENTIST

VOC 3 Vocational (specialist) registration

You can apply if you:

• hold an overseas postgraduate medical qualification (in one of the defined vocational scopes);

• do not hold an approved New Zealand / Australasian postgraduate qualification.

Registration requirements

Under New Zealand law (HPCAA 2003); a doctor can only be registered in a vocational scope if they meet all three of the following requirements:   hold the “prescribed qualification;  is fit for registration; is competent; to practise in the relevant vocational scope of practice.

Prescribed qualification

Council does not have a list of approved overseas postgraduate medical qualifications for vocational registration. Instead, a case by case assessment is undertaken of your qualifications, training and experience compared to those of a New Zealand trained vocationally registered doctor in the same area of medicine, holding the New Zealand or Australasian Fellowship, Diploma or Certificate. This assessment is conducted by the specialist medical college who provide advice to Council. Council makes the final decision on any applications.

GENERAL INFORMATION:

All IMGs are required to work in a provisional vocational scope of practice before vocational registration can be granted. Council determines the requirements the IMG needs to complete to obtain vocational registration, which includes supervised practice (with reporting) and / or types of assessments.

Provisional vocational scope registration is granted to allow the IMG to complete set supervision and / or assessment requirements within 18 months of being registered in a provisional vocational scope.

The minimum period required on a provisional vocational scope is 12 months of satisfactory supervised practice. This allows an IMG’s competence to be confirmed, and for the IMG to be inducted to their new place of employment, and orientated to the New Zealand health system.

An exception to the 12 month supervised practice period is for an IMG that:

has completed the full United Kingdom (UK) training programme; and

holds either a:

- Certificate of Completion of Training (CCT); or

- Certificate of Completion of Specialist Training (CCST); or

- Certificate of Accreditation (JCHMT/JCHTA/JCHST)5; or

- Certificate of Satisfactory Completion of Specialist Training (CSCST); and

has VEAB advice indicating that his or her qualifications, training and experience is “equivalent to” the NZ or Australasian prescribed qualification.

This doctor will usually be required to complete 6 months of satisfactory supervised practice (refer para 15 below). Council will take particular note of any recommendation (with specific reasons) from a VEAB that an IMG should instead complete 12 months under supervision.

If the IMG is deemed eligible for registration in a provisional vocational scope then the IMG will be registered in one of the following pathways:

  • provisional vocational (supervision pathway); or
  • provisional vocational (assessment pathway).

Supervision pathway

Eligibility for provisional vocational scope registration (supervision pathway) is granted if Council considers that:

The IMG has qualifications, training and experience equivalent to that of the prescribed qualification, which is the New Zealand or Australasian Fellowship, Diploma or Certificate qualification;

Assessment pathway

Eligibility for provisional vocational scope registration (assessment pathway) is granted if Council considers that:

The IMG has qualifications, training and experience as satisfactory as that of the prescribed qualification, which is the New Zealand or Australasian Fellowship, Diploma or Certificate qualification;

The IMG is fit and competent for provisional vocational registration; and

The IMG will be able to achieve registration in a vocational scope of practice within 18 months of obtaining registration in a provisional vocational scope.

Speciaist Registration – UK (CESR)

CESR: CERTIFICATE of ELIGIBILITY FOR SPECIALIST REGISTRATION

It is a legal requirement that doctors must have their names entered on the General Medical Council's (GMC's) Specialist Register before taking up substantive, honorary or fixed term NHS consultant posts in the UK. Most doctors achieve this by completing a UK training programme resulting in the award of a Certificate of Completion of Training (CCT*, formerly known as CCST). However, doctors who have completed specialist training overseas or via a non-CCT pathway may be eligible for entry to the Specialist Register without undergoing further training in the UK. These doctors may be able to apply for an assessment to determine their eligibility for Specialist Registration. This is known as the Certificate of Eligibility for Specialist Registration or CESR.

 

Under the CESR pathway, surgeons may apply for evaluation of their specialist training or specialist qualifications as well as acquired specialist medical exprience or knowledge wherever obtained, to detrmine if they are equivalent to a surgeon who has completed a UK CCT (or CCST or a CESR (CP)).

Radiologist Registration– ISS (UK)

ISS - INTERNATIONAL SPONSORSHIP SCHEME

All doctors practising in the UK must be registered with the General Medical Council (GMC).  The usual route to registration for International Medical Graduates (IMGs) is success in the GMC’s PLAB test.

Overseas clinical oncologists (radiation oncologists) or clinical oncology (radiation oncology) trainees who wish to undertake a period of specialist training in the UK may be sponsored for registration by the RCR, as an alternative to taking the PLAB test, under the International Sponsorship Scheme (ISS).  Sponsorship encompasses both GMC registration and an application for a government authorised exchange visa under Tier 5 of the Points Based System Tier 5 Overview.   For those who already have GMC registration, sponsorship for the Tier 5 visa only for the purposes of the ISS may be available upon submission of the forms and information.

Potential applicants and employers should note that sponsorship is exceptional and that the PLAB test remains the usual route through which IMGs may obtain GMC registration.

The overseas applicant must have been offered a post in the UK before the sponsorship process starts.

Background

The ISS operates as part of the Medical Training Initiative (MTI) which is designed to enable a small number of IMGs to enter the UK and undertake training for up to two years, before returning to their home country. Sponsorship for longer than two years is not available.

The scheme makes use of spare training capacity within the NHS. Posts offered under this scheme must be approved by the Local Education and Training Board (LETB)/deanery as neither disadvantaging UK or EEA trainees nor adversely affecting existing trainees, and must contain a sufficient training and educational content to benefit the overseas applicant.

SPECIALIST – AUSTRALIA

SPECIALIST REGISTRATION – AUSTRALIA

The Specialist pathway is for the following international medical graduates (IMGs):

  • overseas-trained specialists applying for assessment of comparability to the standard of a specialist trained in that specialty in Australia (specialist recognition) 
  • overseas-trained specialists applying for an area of need specialist level position in Australia (area of need) 

Eligibility

IMGs who have a primary qualification in medicine and surgery awarded by a training institution recognised by both the Australian Medical Council and the World Directory of Medical Schools (WDOMS) and who have satisfied all the training and examination requirements to practise in their field of specialty in their country of training, can apply for assessment under this pathway (specialist recognition or area of need).

If you currently hold, or previously held, general registration you are not eligible to apply for the specialist pathway. You can complete the requirements for specialist registration while holding general registration, through a separate process. You are not eligible to apply for limited or provisional registration to complete the specialist recognition process.

Primary source verification

Before applying for the Specialist pathway, IMGs must apply to the Australian Medical Council (AMC) for primary source verification of their qualifications.

From 1 October 2015, the AMC will verify qualifications through the Educational Commission for Foreign Medical Graduates (ECFMG) Electronic Portfolio of International Credentials (EPIC), or for applications submitted before 30 September 2015, through ECFMG International Credentials Services (EICS).

Specialist pathway

There are two pathways within the Specialist pathway:

Specialist pathway - specialist recognition:

  • the IMG applies directly to the relevant specialist medical college who assesses comparability against the criteria for an Australian-trained specialist in the same field of specialty practice 
  • the outcome of the specialist medical college's assessment will determine the relevant registration type 
  • the relevant specialist medical college may require the IMG to undertake peer review (oversight) or further training or examinations, before recommending that the IMG be granted recognition as a specialist.

 

Specialist pathway - area of need:

  • the IMG applies directly to the specialist medical college who assesses their qualifications and relevant experience against the specified requirements of a position in a confirmed area of need
  • area of need is determined by the relevant state or territory health authority (the AMC, the college and the Board have no role in determining which areas are declared area of need) 
  • this pathway does not lead to specialist registration. IMGs on the Specialist pathway - area of need can also be on the Specialist pathway - specialist recognition if they wish to gain specialist registration with the Board.

Registration types for IMGs on the Specialist pathway:
