Evidence, data and intelligence

We gather data about the quality of medical education and training across the UK from doctors in postgraduate training, and their trainers. We use this data to help us understand where our standards may not be being met, or to identify potential areas of good practice.

We also respond to any other intelligence about the quality of medical education and training that we receive. From both partner organisations and other regulators.

National training survey

We run the annual national training survey every year to gain a comprehensive picture of the experiences of doctors in training and trainers across the UK. The survey is a core part of our work to monitor and report on the quality of postgraduate medical education and training.
