To undertake a nationwide survey to find out the attitudes of old age specialist registrars (SpRs) towards single and dual training. A questionnaire was sent to all old age SpRs in the UK.
Two-thirds of SpRs were undergoing dual training. Most trainees favoured a flexible system that offers the choice of single or dual accreditation. Many trainees had concerns about single accreditation. Schemes vary in whether they encourage one type of training or another.
Training schemes appear to vary unacceptably in their attitudes to training. There needs to be a more consistent approach nationally. Clearer guidance from the College may help.
