Surgeons needed to help pilot assessment tools for the GMC
  • There have been assessment procedures for investigating poorly performing doctors for the last 13 years. The Academic Centre for Medical Education at University College London is working with the GMC to currently review Fitness to Practise procedures and update the assessments used. We are holding validation events for assessment material and seeking General and Orthopaedic Surgeons to participate.
