We receive regular reports from medical schools, deaneries and local education and training boards, and royal colleges and faculties about the medical education and training that they provide.

We ask these organisations to tell us about

  • anything which is of concern to them and
  • anything which they think is particularly good or effective.

We analyse this information and provide feedback to the organisations on how well we think they are meeting our standards for education and training.

Publishing information from education and training organisations

We publish the regular reports that we receive from deaneries and local education and training boards.

In 2015 we plan to publish the reports we receive from medical schools, royal colleges and faculties and links to these reports will be available from this page.

When we intervene

If we are concerned about something we ask the organisation for more information to assure us that any issues are being dealt with appropriately.

If we are not satisfied with the response of the organisation we can intervene. We call this intervention enhanced monitoring.

Good practice

If we are impressed with something and we think that other organisations would benefit from hearing about it we may develop a case study to share the practice.

You can access our published good practice case studies.
