    Hello,

    I'm trying to translate a CV to English and I can't find a convincing equivalent to "Facultativo Especialista de Área." Any ideas you might have would very much appreciated.

    Facultativo Especialista de Área adscrita al Servicio de Anestesiología y Reanimación
    Facultativo Especialista de Área adscrita al equipo de trasplantes.

    Here are a couple of guesses:

    Specialist Registrar assigned to Anaesthesiology and Reanimation.
    Specialist Registrar assigned to the transplantation team.

    Thank you very much!

    hello:

    In Spanish is very common to use "facultativo" as in "medical doctor/physician"; and "especialista de área" is just "medical specialty".

    Facultativo Especialista de Área adscrita al Servicio de Anestesiología y Reanimación
    Specialist physician assigned to Department of Anesthesiology and Reanimation

    Facultativo Especialista de Área adscrita al equipo de trasplantes.
    Specialist physician assigned to Transplant team


    Regards.

    Thanks very much for you reply fsabroso. Do you know what a "Specialist Registrar" is? From my understanding, "Facultativo Especialista de Área" is a particular position that a doctor has in the course of his of her career after MIR. I think in England MIR might be something like SHO, and after SHO comes Specialist Registrar. But I'm not a doctor, so I don't know.

    Please, follow that question in one of these threats:
    associate specialist vs. specialist registrar
