The guidance sets out the standards for the knowledge, skills and behaviour which students are required to meet in order to graduate from UK medical schools.
Since the guidance was last produced in 2003 there have been many fundamental changes to medical education and training, including Lord Darzi’s Next Stage Review.
Professor Michael Farthing, chair of the ‘Tomorrow’s Doctors’ Review Group, said: ‘The consultation takes into account several important areas for review, such as prescribing and patient exposure, professionalism and leadership, assessment, quality management, student selected components and disability.’
The revised guidance will be published in summer 2009. To take part in the consultation, visit www.gmc-uk.org/tomorrowsdoctors
