UK Medical Training: “The State of Postgraduate Education and Training 2008, a changing landscape” PMETB publishes new literature

PMETB has commented on the state of postgraduate education at the RCP (Royal College of Physicians) conference on the 17th November 2008. The actions taken by MMC and the PMETB will have a direct effect on applicants to postgraduate training in the UK.

On their website PMETB refer to the new document as follows…

“Chapters focus on key policy and regulatory developments, topical issues such as leadership, training delivery, assessments and the standards and quality of training in the UK.”

Its been a difficult time for the gatekeepers of postgraduate education in England, with PMETB acknowledging the problems with MMC. Their publication is hefty, all 93 pages of it.

Medical Educator is hoping to get an interview a representative from PMETB with a view to the issues the prior problems have raised with medical students entering what PMETB has itself termed a “changing landscape”.
