How do I list my evidence in the application?

Evidence of your qualifications

You’ll need to enter the details of any specialist medical qualification(s) and any other relevant qualifications you have gained since your original application. You should submit evidence of the qualifications you list and the curriculum or syllabus you followed.

How do I enter my professional experience

You’ll need to give full details of all the posts you’ve held since your original application. This should start with the most recent and work backwards.
If you’ve worked overseas, please don’t change your overseas post title to match to a UK title. Tell us the actual title you held.

Examples of post titles include:

  • SHO 
  • Registrar
  • Staff Grade
  • District Medical Officer
  • Clinical Tutor
  • Assistant Professor and Resident. 

Also give details of any periods longer than one month when you weren’t practising medicine.

This could include:

  • alternative employment
  • clinical attachments
  • vacation
  • study leave
  • maternity leave
  • career breaks
  • unemployment.

Please give a brief explanation for each period.

Listing your evidence

In your application you should list the evidence you’re submitting against each recommended adaptation period. 

You should:

  • list the documents you are submitting to show you meet the recommended adaptation period
  • explain how you’ve now met the required standard 


  • explain box how you’ve already met the required standard and where you feel a procedural error has occurred.

Once you’ve sent us your hard copy application form and paid the application fee, we’ll create your application in our system. We’ll then release the application to you via GMC online so that you can upload your evidence electronically.

We’ve created a step-by-step user guide to show you how to upload your evidence in GMC online once we’ve released this to you.
