Have your say on the future of GP training

The RCGP is refreshing the GP curriculum and workplace based assessment (WPBA) component of the MRCGP from August 2017, with a major shift towards encouraging professional capability and less 'box ticking'.

This move is in line with the new GMC Generic Professional Capabilities Framework and changes for discussion include reducing the burden of WPBA and introducing trainee-led clinical leadership and QI activities in ST1-2.

The RCGP will be running a session at its annual conference that will give delegates the opportunity to contribute their own ideas and experiences to the consultation process, and influence the future training of GPs. The session will be chaired by Dr Pauline Foreman, the RCGP's chief examiner.
