Before applying

  • If you’re an NTN holder, you should discuss your ATSM plans at your ARCP at the end of year 4
  • If you’re an LAT (ST6/7 equivalent), you should discuss your ATSM plans at your ARCP
  • If you’re in a non-training grade, you should discuss your ATSM plans at your annual appraisal
  • All doctors need to consult with their deanery ATSM Director to confirm that training in the requested ATSM is available

This includes obtaining signatures from the people involved in the specific ATSM module:

  •  ATSM Educational Supervisor(s) in charge of that ATSM
