The Shape of Training review, released in October 2013, examined postgraduate medical education and training in the UK to ensure that doctors now and in the future are able to meet the changing needs of patients, society and health services.
One of the report’s proposals was that full GMC registration should move to the point of graduation from medical school provided that there are measures in place to demonstrate that graduates are fit to practise.
Health Education England (HEE) has been progressing work around this proposal and are now holding two events in Leeds and London as part of ongoing engagement with key stakeholders.
The engagement exercise is to look at the implications of moving the point of registration and identify the advantages and disadvantages to inform future proposals should an incoming government decide to proceed with this change. This is an important issue for employers which will require careful planning and implementation to minimise service implications.
The dates of the workshops are:
- Monday 9 March – Park Plaza Hotel, Leeds
- Tuesday 17 March – Mary Ward House, Tavistock Place, London.
Both events will start at 10.30 (registration from 10am) concluding with lunch at 1pm.
We are looking for employers who are interested in attending to hear more from HEE and feed in the service perspective. Ideally we are looking for directors/assistant directors of HR/workforce, medical staffing leads, medical directors and directors of medical education.
If you would be interested in attending one of the events, please email email@example.com
