Education and Training Advisory Board

The Education and Training Advisory Board was established in April 2013 to provide advice to the GMC on matters concerned with the delivery of undergraduate and postgraduate medical education and training, and on going career progression. Its advice will be crucial in developing GMC policy and in ensuring that Council itself is fully briefed before major decisions are made.  

The Board’s invited membership reflects the range of those who have a key interest in medical education and training across the UK.
