Medical - Medical (general)
|English term or phrase: Staff grade, Associate Specialists|
|Can anyone tell me what is the equivalent of above british form of grade -Staff Grade, Associate Specialists, Specialist Registrar in Japanese?|
|Japanese translation:認定臨床医, 専門医|
associate specialist doctor --> (roughly) 専門医
staff-grade doctor --> (roughly) 認定臨床医
In terms of seniority: staff grade < associate specialist < consultant
Please note that Japanese and UK medical career grades systems evolved differently. It's unlikely that one can find the pigeon-hole kind of equivalents for fitting a translation. (There may not be anything like Specialist Registrar in Japan, for example -- see the Wikipedia sources for details)
I suggest you add in some brief explanations (in brackets) where necessary.
The wikipedia sources give a very good account on what the career paths are like.

In the United Kingdom, an associate specialist doctor is one who is appointed to a permanent position in the middle ranks. The rank is the highest that a doctor not seeking to be made a consultant may achieve, and is usually confered upon staff grade doctors after several years experience (although it is possible to go from specialist registrar to associate specialist if one chooses at that stage to leave the consultant career path).
A specialist registrar is a doctor in the United Kingdom who is receiving advanced training in a specialist field of medicine in order eventually to become a consultant.
