Tomorrow's Doctors

This guidance sets out the knowledge, skills and behaviours that new UK medical graduates must be able to show. It also sets standards for teaching, assessment and learning for medical students and medical schools.

We published the current version of Tomorrow’s Doctors in 2009 and it has applied since the academic year 2011/12.
