The Regulator- GMC

The Regulator - General Medical Council (GMC)

The GMC regulates all stages of doctors' training and professional development in the UK, promoting high standards and ensuring that medical education and training reflect the needs of patients, medical students and trainees, and the health service.

The GMC standards for medical education and training in ‘The Trainee Doctor’ and the 'Quality Improvement Framework' set out the requirements for the management and delivery of postgraduate medical education and training in the UK.

From January 2016, new standards will come into effect.  Further information can be found at or by viewing the presentation 'Promoting Excellence: Standards for Medical Education and Training'
