The Physician Specialty Recruitment Office (PSRO) have made updates to the alternative certificate for application to Group 1 specialties in 2022 in ST3 Recruitment. This aims to ensure that trainee progression is based on the acquisition of capabilities, rather than time spent in any particular clinical area. The time requirements specified for both geriatric medicine and critical care have been replaced with demonstration of the curriculum defined capabilities. Additionally, the 2022 version of the certificate will be valid in subsequent years barring any major curriculum changes. More information can be found on the ST3 recruitment website.
