This section contains information on the role of the GMC in medical education and training and who we work with.
The purpose of the GMC is to protect, promote and maintain the health and safety of the public by ensuring proper standards in the practice of medicine.
To achieve this, one of our core legal functions is to regulate medical education and training so that patients now and in the future can be confident that they will receive safe, high quality medical care. We set standards and requirements that must be met on the ground; and check that they really are met, through quality assurance activity.
In this section, you can find out more about the role of the GMC in medical education and training and who we work with, and read our key publications, such as our Education Strategy.
