Assuring readiness for practice: a framework for the MLA
In March 2021 we published Assuring readiness for practice: a framework for the MLA.
The framework formally specifies that, from academic year 2024-25, students graduating from UK medical schools will need to pass the MLA as part of their degree programme before they can join the medical register, and sets out what medical schools need to do to meet our requirements for the MLA.
The framework was updated in November 2023, to incorporate an update to the MLA compliance date to 1 May 2024, and transitional arrangements for out of programme medical students in academic year 2023-24. View the summary of changes.
You can also view the framework and its annexes as standalone documents:
