GMC unveils new standards to boost flexibility of doctors' training

New standards to make postgraduate training more flexible for doctors have been unveiled by the General Medical Council (GMC).

The standards, detailed in a new document Excellence by design: standards for postgraduate curricula provide a framework for the approval and provision of postgraduate medical education and training across the UK.

Medical colleges and faculties will update all 103 existing postgraduate medical curricula against the GMC’s new standards, with a target to complete the process by 2020. The GMC, which oversees medical education and training in the UK, will approve each curriculum before it’s delivered to doctors.
