GMC Pilots

There have been assessment procedures for investigating poorly performing doctors for 14 years. ACME at UCL is working with the GMC to review Fitness to Practise procedures and update the assessments to ensure each assessment is fair to the doctor being assessed. To do this, validation events are held for new assessment material. Interested and fully registered doctors are encouraged to participate. The day involves taking a written test of knowledge and a 12 station OSCE and lasts 10:00am – 4:30pm at the Clinical Assessment Centre. Participants receive an honorarium of £350 plus (standard class) travel expenses and lunch. For more information and to apply please contact us.
