A leaflet entitled 'Licensing and you: Information for registered doctors' will be sent to doctors on the medical register.
The publication aims to provide doctors with information about the license to practise and its impact on the medical profession.
From autumn 2009 a doctor wanting to practise medicine in the UK must be a licensed medical practitioner - this means they must hold both registration and a licence to practise with the GMC.
Sir Graeme Catto, GMC president, said: ‘This change in medical regulation next year will have important implications for doctors, employers and patients.'
