*Please note the information below is now historic. Current information for StR trainees is available under “UK Trainees>StR Trainees”*

SpR Trainees

Those who are undertaking approved surgical training in Ireland or started training in the UK before 1 August 2007 are known as Specialist Registrars (SpRs) or Calman trainees*.

Guidance on the arrangements for SpR training is set out in A Manual of Higher Surgical Training (also known as the Pink Book) and A Guide to Specialist Registrar Training (also known as the Orange Book).

SpR trainees are expected to use the eLogbook to record their operations.

*Trainees who switch to a more recent curriculum will become StRs
