GMC runs framework consultation on the broad principles and processes for our credentialing model.
69% of 217 responses agree with our reasons for introducing credentials and just 16% disagree. Some respondents are concerned about how our framework will be implemented and how credentialing will work in practice.
GMC Council agree that we will work with a small number of early adopters to evaluate and test the cost effectiveness and efficacy of our credentialing model during 2016-17. You can view the council discussion here.
We set the standards for the delivery of medical training, and the outcomes we expect medical students and doctors to achieve.
The General Medical Council
We help to protect patients and improve medical education and practice in the UK by setting standards for students and doctors. We support them in achieving and exceeding those standards, and take action when they are not met.
