Programme and site approvals
Deaneries and local offices must check that their training locations meet the standards set out in Promoting excellence.
These standards include providing appropriate supervision and opportunities to meet curriculum requirements. Deaneries must also check training locations to make sure they continue to meet our standards.
Doctors’ posts often cover a variety of different locations. This is more common in some specialties than in others. Deaneries and local offices therefore need to make sure training and assessment takes place in environments that meet our standards.
To view approved programmes or training sites by deanery or local office, please see our list of approved programmes and sites. We update this list on a fortnightly basis.
To view approved sites that have GMC conditions attached to them, please see our list of approved locations with conditions.
