The curriculum forms the foundation for GP training and assessment across the UK, and is relevant to GPs throughout their career, including preparation for revalidation.
The GP curriculum and GP training and development
The GP curriculum defines the knowledge, skills and qualities required throughout a GP's career, from trainee to experienced practitioner.
It’s the basis of our MRCGP membership exam, and underpins our CPD resources for experienced GPs.
