Standards for medical education and training – consultation on draft standards

General Medical Council, 28 January 2015

The GMC has launched a consultation on new standards which, for the first time, will create a single set of standards for organisations delivering medical education and training across the UK. The standards will bring together the medical education and training received by all doctors and is designed to make sure that fairness and patients’ safety, experience and quality of care lie at the core of teaching and training. The standards set out how organisations must promote and encourage a learning environment and culture that allows learners and trainers to raise concerns about patient safety, and the standard of training, without fear of adverse consequences.

The consultation closes on 24 March 2015. The new standards will update current GMC guidance in Tomorrows Doctors and The Trainee Doctor.
