The General Medical Council is seeking views on the knowledge, skills and professional behaviours needed by newly-qualified doctors. The feedback will be used to help shape the future development of undergraduate medical education.

 The GMC has updated its ‘Outcomes for graduates’ to better reflect modern medical education and practice around what doctors must know and be able to do by the time they graduate from medical school.

“Doctors will be expected to have an understanding of areas such as population health and managing the care of patients with multiple diseases, complex areas of practice such as consent, confidentiality and safeguarding, and an appreciation of the needs of patients from diverse backgrounds, said the GMC.

The new guidance places an emphasis on medical school curricula including doctors being able to:

  • work in partnership with patients, families and carers;
  • raise and act on issues of patient safety; and
  • understand their responsibility to safeguard vulnerable patients.

The consultation runs until 10 January 2018.
