Clinical Supervision E-learning


In January 2008 the GMC (previously PMETB) published a 'Standards for Trainers' document which outline the requirements for faculty working in postgraduate medical education.  In an accompanying letter they recognise that;

 ...there will need to be a period of transition for local education providers, postgraduate deaneries, and colleges to fully implement these standards. The GMC also recognises the diversity of settings in which specialty training takes place. For that reason, they will not expect demonstration of full compliance with the standards for trainers until January 2010.

However the GMC will expect that deaneries must consider and then clearly articulate how they are going to achieve this compliance over the next  year, working with and through local education providers and medical Royal Colleges. All GMC quality assurance activity after January 2010 will seek confirmation that the standards for trainers are fully met.
