Medical training is the responsibility of the General Medical Council (GMC), which is an independent statutory body. The GMC has the general function of promoting high standards of education and co-ordinating all stages of education to ensure that medical students and newly qualified doctors are equipped with the knowledge, skills and attitudes essential for professional practice.
The training curricula for postgraduate trainee doctors is set by the relevant medical Royal College, and must meet standards set by the GMC. Whilst curricula do not necessarily highlight specific conditions, they instead emphasise the skills and approaches that a doctor must develop and maintain in order to ensure accurate and timely diagnoses and treatment plans for their patients.
The GMC also sets the standards expected at undergraduate level and approves medical school curricula. In so doing, they set out the knowledge, skills and behaviours that new United Kingdom medical graduates must be able to demonstrate. This is further detailed at the following link:
