Generic Professional Capabilities Implementation Guidance

Save for Later

The GMC has developed the Generic professional capabilities framework with the Academy of Medical Royal Colleges (AoMRC) to describe the fundamental, career-long, generic capabilities required of every doctor. This describes the requirement to develop and maintain key professional values and behaviours, knowledge, and skills, using a common language.

Generic professional capabilities also represent a system-wide, regulatory response to the most common contemporary concerns about patient safety and fitness to practise within the medical profession. The framework will be relevant at all stages of medical education, training and practice.
