Information we publish

We publish the information we have about trainers on the medical register. This includes doctors who have been recognised as a:

  • named postgraduate clinical supervisor
  • named postgraduate educational supervisor
  • lead coordinator of undergraduate training at each placement location; or
  • doctor responsible for overseeing students' educational progress at each medical school.

Doctors who hold one or more of these roles have a note on their medical register entry to say 'This doctor is a trainer recognised by the GMC'.

Doctors whose practice contributes to the teaching, training or supervision of students or doctors in training don't need recognition. Local recognition may be available to trainers not currently in the four specific roles, including non-medical trainers.
