GP training is going through transformation

The RCGP has published a new curriculum outlining attitudes, skills and expertise required to become a competent GP in the UK NHS.

The new curriculum provides: 

  • Enhanced content reflecting modern General Practice

  • New and updated Professional, Life Stages, and Clinical Topic Guides

  • Knowledge and skills guides for each topic

  • Integrated information on training and assessment

  • Content relevant to a lifelong career as a GP

The RCGP curriculum sets out the educational framework that forms the basis of the discipline of general practice and builds a foundation for career-long development. The full curriculum and topic guides can found on the RCGP website.

As well as the curriculum documentation, there are three short, downloadable presentations, summarising:

  • The core curriculum content and structure

  • The curriculum topic guides

  • WPBA and ePortfolio changes

A summary of all the changes is on the RCGP website.
