Standards for Medical Education and Training (GMC)


Medical students and doctors are obliged to make the patient safety their first concern; and this applies similarly to the organisations involved in medical education and training. The General Medical Council (GMC)’s “Promoting Excellence: Standards for Medical Education and Training”, covering undergraduate and postgraduate medical education and training, has elevated patient safety to the top priority. The main section headings comprise:

  1. About these standards.
  2. Patient safety is the first priority.
  3. The ten standards.
  4. Theme 1: Learning environment and culture.
  5. Theme 2: Educational governance and leadership.
  6. Theme 3: Supporting learners.
  7. Theme 4: Supporting educators.
  8. Theme 5: Developing and implementing curricula and assessments.
