There’s an unavoidable gap between the end of my internship and graduation as my school’s program is determined as follows:
From July 2019 to July 2020: Internship (12 months fulfilling all criteria)
July 2020 to June 2021: Clinical rotations (or clerkship, I suppose)
— Graduation ----
August 2021 to July 2022: Social service and PMQ conferred at the end.
The Clinical Rotations Certificate my university provided does not distinguish between internship and clerkship year, it only states that I successfully completed clinical sciences (equivalent to internship) with an average of 92.45 and a list of all rotations follows.
I am a bit concerned at the possibility of being asked for further explanation about the ambiguity of the certificate and being refused full registration.
Would you recommend I request my university sign GMC’s Evidence of Internship form and have a document ready to explain the gap year? Or would I be able to make the distinction when I fill out the full registration application online?
