There are two types of SPIN offered by RCPCH:
- SPIN in training for level 3 trainees - This is additional training and experience in a clinical area, which you complete in 12 to 18 months of clinical time. If you do a SPIN module and complete your training, you can apply for posts as a General Paediatrician with a special expertise.
- Post completion SPIN for paediatricians on the GMC specialist register - This is additional training or experience, which you complete usually over a 12 month to five year period.
All SPIN modules are designed to enable a paediatrician to lead in that area as part of meeting a service need. It is vitally important that you articulate the service need for your choice of SPIN explaining why it is necessary on your application form.
