The cost of obtaining a certificate of completion of training will be held at £805, and the cost of an alternative certificate of eligibility at £1,905.
The decision will come as a relief to trainees who have borne successive fees hikes in recent years.
Fees will be frozen at 2009 levels for 2010/11, the GMC says.
GMC chairman Professor Peter Rubin said: ‘I am pleased the immediate economies of scale can be passed on. This is the first time fees have not been increased.’
The freeze will cost the GMC between £1-2m next year. But the DoH for England has agreed in principle to underwrite the cost.
The decision is only a short-term measure. Professor Rubin said that the newly merged body would take a year to look at what the fee structure should be.
