The state of medical education and practice in the UK: 2011

This is our first report on the state of medical education and practice.

The state of medical education and practice

The information we hold as a medical regulator gives us a unique overview of medical education and practice across the UK. 

Until recently we have not routinely analysed and shared that information. However, we think it is important that we should do so because it is likely to be of interest to the medical profession, the public and policy makers.

This report is the first step in that process. It sets out much of what we know about the medical profession, drawing on our own data and, where appropriate, data from other sources.

Our aim in publishing this is to promote discussion and debate on issues and trends that require attention or further analysis. It is the first of what we intend to be an annual report and reflects our commitment to extending our leadership role within the profession and being a more proactive regulator.
