Medical Licensing Assessment

We’re introducing the Medical Licensing Assessment (MLA) which will test the core knowledge, skills and behaviours of doctors new to medical practice in the UK.


Guides for candidates

These guides include the latest information to help candidates prepare for the introduction of the MLA.

What will the MLA cover?

All content in the MLA will derive from the MLA content map. This is underpinned by three themes: readiness for safe practice, managing uncertainty and delivering person-centred care. We’ll keep the MLA content map up to date to make sure it reflects real-life, day-to-day medical practice.
