Outcomes for graduates – Practical skills and procedures

We set the standards and requirements for all stages of medical education and training in Promoting excellence: standards for medical education and training and hold a list of universities entitled to award a medical degree recognised as a UK primary medical qualification.

Our Outcomes for graduates set out what newly qualified doctors from all medical schools must know and be able to do.

Practical skills and procedures outlines the core set of practical skills and procedures, and minimum level of performance that newly qualified doctors must have when they start work for the first time so they can practise safely.
