Promoting excellence

These standards set out requirements for the management and delivery of undergraduate and postgraduate medical education and training.

Promoting excellence: standards for medical education and training sets out ten standards that we expect organisations responsible for educating and training medical students and doctors in the UK to meet.

The standards and requirements are organised around five themes. Some requirements – what an organisation must do to show us they are meeting the standards – may apply to a specific stage of education and training.

This document sits alongside our Outcomes for graduates and Outcomes for provisionally registered doctors, which set out what we expect doctors to learn.
