† CME/CPD Eligibility and Reciprocity
The General Medical Council (GMC) is a public body that maintains the official register of medical practitioners within the United Kingdom. Health Care Professionals from allied professions and those practising outside of the United Kingdom should check the regulations that may be applicable to their profession and the region in which they may be applicable.
CPD and CME is the engagement in a continuing learning process, outside formal undergraduate and postgraduate training, that enables individual doctors to maintain and improve standards of medical practice through the development of knowledge, skills, attitudes and behavior.
Within the United Kingdom, all surgeons in non-training grades who have a license to practice and wish to remain on the GMC register must participate in CPD activities to meet the requirements of revalidation. The GMC requires documented proof of CPD as an essential part of successful appraisal and revalidation.
It is the responsibility of individual surgeons to keep abreast of new developments that apply to their roles and practice and ensure that they undertake a range of CPD activities that reflect the needs of their practice and their own learning.
Because of the wide range and variety of medical practise, it is recognized that doctors working in one specialty may find it helpful to undertake CPD activities that are more usually appropriate for a different specialty. To facilitate this, a CPD activity approved by one College or Faculty may be accepted as part of the CPD for a doctor from a different College or Faculty without the need for a second accreditation process. Reciprocity is not for the purpose of encouraging Colleges and Faculties to accredit activities in specialties that are not their own.
