The General Medical Council (GMC) has announced plans to develop a new medical licensing assessment, provisionally named the United Kingdom Medical Licensing Asessment (UKMLA).
It's hoped that it will fully replace the current professional and linguistic assessment board (PLAB) with a requirement for all doctors to complete the UKMLA (both international and UK) when joining the UK medical register.
The GMC will work with key stakeholders, partners and experts across the UK to develop this assessment and expect to have a proposal model to present to the GMC Council by June 2016.
