UK medical schools guide to the MLA

UK medical students graduating in the academic year 2024-25 will need to pass the MLA as part of their medical school degree before they can join the medical register.

The MLA will make it possible, for the first time, to demonstrate that graduates from each UK medical school have met an agreed standard of proficiency and are well prepared to practise medicine as Foundation Year doctors. The MLA will also provide assurance that anyone who obtains a UK medical degree has shown that they can meet a common and consistent threshold for safe practice before they are licensed to work in the UK.
