A revised process for Programme Approvals has been launched by the GMC for adding a new location to an already approved programme. There is also a new form for Programme and Location approval.
The new process
Deanery / Local Office representatives can apply directly to the GMC for approval using a new application form that asks for less information.
Royal Colleges / Faculties will no longer need to review requests for approval. However the GMC are encouraging Deanery/ Local Office representatives to continue to work closely with Colleges and Faculties when considering new locations to ensure that the curriculum and assessment requirements can be delivered across the programme with appropriate supervision.
Please see the GMC website here to submit any new location approvals.
